Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

Ditch the can — this comforting tomato soup is made from scratch in under 15 minutes (really!). We use torn sliced white bread to thicken up the blended soup. Trust us — the result is creamy, delicious, and amazing paired with a grilled cheese.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
