My mother made tomato soup like this and it was always a favorite. Only difference she heated the milk before adding it to the tomatoes so as soon as the milk went in, it was ready to eat. She also sometimes used just tomato juice, depending on how many jars of tomatoes verses juice she had. Perfect for a cold winter night.
I thought I was the only one that loved tomato soup like this. So much like my Grandma made!!! She didn’t use the garlic, more pepper, and she always added some butter. Perfect in every way!!! I will add a disclaimer, if you are expecting the thick, creamy tomato soup like you find in the super market you will be disappointed. This is a both like tomato soup that depression era grannies make. It’s simple and light and fabulous!

Made with 2 cans of stewed tomatoes like suggested, but only 3 cups of milk, and no garlic salt. Added more pepper than suggested and was very good. Just like I remember growing up.
This recipe is very much like the soup that my Granny used to make. The difference is that she added one medium diced potato with the tomatoes and cooked until soft before adding the rest of the ingredients. Because my family likes spicy food I use two small cans of Rotel in place of the plain tomatoes. We serve it with crusty bread for dipping.
This recipe is so bland, tasteless and gross, it deserves 0 stars ! I hate when someone submits a recipe and then seeds the reviews with some phoney 5 stars reviews. What a colossal waste of a can of tomatoes and a quart of milk !!
I was raised on this style tomato soup. My grandmother was the only one that seem to be able to make it without the milk curdling. She used her own home canned tomatoes and I just loved it.
Oh my gosh, I grew up with this tomato soup. I don't know of anyone else that I know has had this. I don't put garlic salt in mine, otherwise its the same. Some times I use half and half, but don't use too much. I use home grown heirloom tomato's so I skin them and then cook them until well done. Homegrown give you a much better flavor and slightly sweet. I made this soup several time this summer. I have several packages of frozen tomatoes that I will use this winter.
Nasty! Would have been better off with a tomato and a glass of milk. Now my toddler tells me all the time, "I don't want tomatoes in milk. It's yucky."
Great lunch for late workers.
