Daniel's Stewed Tomato Soup

Rose Mary Mogan


This is a recipe my husband's mother use to make for him during childhood. I do not have her exact recipe, but this is as close as I could come to what I envisioned her recipe to be from his description.

He requested it yesterday, & this is my version. I made it a bit thick with tomato soup & diced tomatoes, made a slurry using arrowroot & added a bit of Splenda to take the edge off the tomatoes, then a few herbs,& in the end instead of toasting bread & cutting it into cubes, I chose to use large salad croutons. I didn't have green onions so I used yellow. It was rich thick tasty & hearty.
