I’ve already posted one tomato soup recipe on this blog, but I just have to post another!  I found this recipe my “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” cookbook and made it a while ago almost exactly as it is in the cookbook.  Everyone in our family fell in LOVE!  I really do mean everyone.  Me.  My husband.  My 4 year old boys.  My 2 year old daughter. My 1 year old daughter. We all asked for seconds.

A few weeks later, I decided to give it a shot with 100% pantry items and see if it was still any good.  I was THRILLED to find out that yes, we still loved it.

The original Sherried Tomato Soup recipe from Ree Drummond calls for Sherry wine, and it is the last ingredient added.  I didn’t trust that all the alcohol would be cooked off, and we don’t drink any alcohol around here.  So, the first time I made it, I substituted 3/4 cup apple juice + 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar for the 1 cup Sherry wine.  When I made it the second time, I used THRIVE Orchard Apple drink instead of the apple juice.   So, here it is, my Not-So Sherried Tomato Soup:
