You Bring The Tomatoes. We’ll Bring The Authentic Cheese Flavor.

Making a Classic Clean Label

One of the most beloved and comforting food pairings is grilled cheese and tomato soup. The combination of cheesy, buttery goodness with the bright, tangy qualities of tomato soup are a classic taste profile. Although delicious, this pairing requires a little effort and some canned soups leave much to be desired in terms of taste and health and wellness goals. So the food technologists and research chefs at Edlong put our new Edlong® Simply Dairy ingredients to the test to create a convenient classic with a clean label.

Creamy Italian Cheese and Tomato Soup

First, our chef sautéed onions and celery in olive oil. Next, our maestro combined tomatoes, broth and a dash of cream with garlic, basil and spices to create a delicious and satisfying base. But something was still missing—the cheese! Using an Edlong Simply Dairy ingredient, we were able to add the savory, creamy, aged Italian notes that combine perfectly with the acids and sugars of the tomato. The result is a velvety, authentic, cheesy soup with savory aged Parmesan and Romano notes—with no commodity cheese in the recipe!
