MRE RECIPE: Tomato Soup

One of my son's favorite soups (besides chicken noodle!) is Campbell's Tomato Soup. I devised this recipe and I think I'm pretty close. Thoughts?

4 tbsp tomato powder
1 chicken bouillon cube or 1 tbsp homemade chicken bouillon powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp butter powder

Mix and seal. When ready to eat, add 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups boiling water. More if thinner soup is preferred.

This is a single serving as a side dish/soup. To make a full meal out of this, please double the recipe.

  • Some people prefer a creamy tomato soup. Add 2 tbsp of your favorite milk powder (goat, rice, cow, etc)
  • Gluten-free: the best way to make sure the bouillon cube doesn't have wheat, gluten or too much sodium in it is to make your own! Take chicken (or beef) broth and simmer until reduced to very thick. Spread on a fruit roll up sheet and dehydrate until crispy enough to powder.
