6 comfort food creations starring canned items

Start with a creamy soup

Canned tomatoes are a standard in my pantry, and while sauce is an obvious way to let this star staple shine, I also like to use the lycopene-rich ingredient to whip up a good ol’ tomato soup. I go for a creamy spin in this recipe by adding protein-packed silken tofu. The tomatoes and carrots add a healthy dose of antioxidants for a double bonus. It’s tasty on its own or even better, I like to enjoy a comforting bowl with a grilled cheese sandwich. It brings me back to my childhood, but with a modern-day twist. Dipping optional…but highly recommended 🙂
