First up, I'm sharing a recipe that's a play on an old classic - Tomato Soup Cake. Only ours are muffins, healthier, gluten free, allergy friendly, and perfect for lunches!
Pacific Foods Organic Creamy Tomato Soup is Little Miss' favorite! We'll share more about it later in the week with her favorite way to enjoy it, but I wanted to come up with a creative new way incorporate it in lunches, besides just packed into a thermos.
Back in the 50's, Tomato Soup Cake became a "thing" as popularity with convenience foods were on the rise. If you ask your grandmother, or even your parents, I'm sure they'll remember enjoying it at one point in their life.
I wanted to create a play on this yummy recipe by incorporating Pacific Foods delicious tomato soup, but also keeping it gluten free and allergy friendly. The soup does contain milk, but it's gluten free, wheat free, soy free yeast free, & more. You can download their product information/ allergen guide by clicking here.
We amped our muffins up by also adding shredded carrotsto the batter. Extra nutrition + the carrots add a natural sweetness to the recipe.
The original Tomato Soup Cake recipes all have a thick layer of cream cheese icing. So we made a light glaze instead for our muffins. It's optional, so entirely your choice to add it or not.
The recipe widget is at the bottom of this post to print along with a clickable link, in case you cannot view it on your mobile device.
For lunch, we used our ECOLunchbox to include a yummy muffin, turkey roll-ups, and fresh fruit.
Enter to win a prize pack just like pictured above thanks to Pacific Foods & More to help YOU Pack a Healthier Lunch and make these muffins. ;)
