For those on a very low sodium diet, this soup can be made without any added salt. A small amount of salt enhances this recipe, but it will still be very low sodium compared to traditional tomato soups. Each teaspoon of low-salt soy sauce or tamari will add 100 mg of sodium per 12 oz serving.
Onion powder can be made with dried chopped onions in a coffee mill.
This recipe, thickened with a little corn starch or whole wheat flour, can be used as a pasta sauce or over vegetables, rice or potatoes.
For tomato-rice soup, mix in ½ C cooked brown rice.
