Simple Cream of Tomato Soup

Only a few extra minutes and you can have cream of tomato soup without the can.
So delicious paired with a Monte Cristo Sandwich or a good old fashioned grilled cheese!

4 cups tomato juice(fresh is SO good, but a commercial brand is just fine too)**
2 cups milk(whichever fat content you prefer, we like non fat)
2 TB butter*
1/4 cup flour*
1/2 tsp baking soda
seasoning salt
garlic powder
onion powder

*omit butter and add 3 TB cornstarch to cold milk before heating  for GF

Melt butter over medium heat, add flour and whisk until crumbly.

SLOWLY add milk and heat to boiling. Boil and stir until thickened.
Add baking soda and mix well

Add seasonings to tomato juice(to your personal preference, I use about 1/2 tsp S.salt, GP and OP and 1 tsp parsley and oregano)

Add tomato juice to white sauce and stir well.
Heat through and serve!

** V8 juice is a GREAT way to mix it up a little too!
