Tomato Soup with Bagels

Again the lovely Erika from Eclectic Enchantments and co editor of the brand new Erisea Magazine has shared a lovely post with you and I.

It made me put Heinz soup down on my shopping  list, those bagels are such a good idea.

Tomato Soup with Bagels

I have been known, on occasion, to be a tad impulsive and when I last managed to get to the supermarket I spotted glinting at me in the distance a can of soup like no other, Campbell's Andy Warhol range.  I love the art he produced, it is so interesting and different, leaving a lasting impression on every generation, love him or hate him.  With out thinking I popped the can into my basket and went home.


Isn't it just fantastic?  I love how they have perfectly captured the pop art style with the use of colour and bold text.


Last week my Mum rang me to tell me about some bagels she saw advertised in the latest Coeliac UK magazine.  Called Udi's, they were billed as being like 'normal' bagels, something I miss a great deal, slightly sweeter and with a sticky texture, they were always a great alternative to bread.  The next thing you know my wonderful husband comes home from doing the shopping and pulls a bag of them out for me to try!  This calls for soup & bagels!
So I made up my Campbell's soup, which was tantalisingly teasing me as it's aroma started to fill the kitchen! I popper my bagels into the toaster and waited.


I had the pleasure of trying the bagels for my breakfast and I can only say a huge thank you to Udi's.  There is no difference in gluten or gluten free containing bagels with these.  They have the same texture and slight sweet stickiness that you would associate with any plain bagel out there.  A delight to eat, smothered in a nice bit of Lurpak, I was a happy girl!

Once beautifully toasted and melting the the butter I had spread on it, I started to get the soup poured when I suddenly thought, 'Is Campbell's gluten free?'  The short answer is no.  I was so disappointed, piping hot bagels growing colder by the second and I was short a bowl of soup.  Luckily for me Heinz was straight to the rescue, (via Mick who found the can in the cupboard) and I grabbed a clean saucepan, snapped open the can and started to heat it up.


In no time at all and whilst my bagels were amazingly still warm, the soup was reading and poured into my bowl ready to be devoured, but not until I added three little ingredients.  A sprinkle of salt, a dash of Basil and a grating of Grana Padano, parmesan cheese!


It was, all things considered a really tasty and enjoyable meal, that should have taken a couple of minutes to prepare but in fact took a little longer due to my oversight.


Thanks for having a read, I appreciate your time!  What have you been cooking lately?
