#SoupArt

I think most of us are probably aware of the name Andy Warhol even if we are not great Art enthusiasts.  I have always loved old movies, and knew of Andy Warhol through his images of Marilyn Monroe.  I then became aware of another famous piece of Warhol art – the Campbell’s Tomato Soup Cans #SoupArt.

Campbell’s Soup have just launched Andy Warhol inspired limited edition Condensed Tomato Soup Cans ……#SoupArtI  decided to track a can down for myself and wondered if I could cook up some #SoupArt in the kitchen …

I had my tin of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup that I’d bought in town yesterday and thought I’d do a spin on my Chilli Con Carne dish.

#SoupArtI needed 500g mince, a red onion (chopped), couple of garlic cloves (crushed), celery stick (chopped), mushrooms (chopped), tin of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup, tin of Peeled Plum Tomatoes, tin of Kidney Beans, chilli, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and oregano.

#SoupArt Heat some olive oil in a pan, add the chopped onion, crushed garlic and chopped celery and cook for a few minutes until soft.  Add the mince and cook through until browned, add a teaspoon of cumin, paprika, oregano and chilli paste along with half teaspoon of cayenne pepper.  Cook through for 5 minutes.  Add the condensed tomato soup, plum tomatoes and kidney beans, stir through and simmer for 30 minutes.

I served it up with steamed brown rice and asked my nearly 4 year old Monkey son AKA ‘Chief Taste Tester’ to give it his seal of approval.

#SoupArt It got the thumbs up – #SoupArt.  I actually wouldn’t have thought to use Condensed Soup, but it made a nice change.  It thicken the mixture up, whilst still providing a tomato base.  We were all impressed and I think I’ll make this a more regular dinner ingredient.

This is our entry in the Campbell’s ‘15 MINUTES OF FAME’ competition.

If you fancy a bit of your own Warhol inspired art why not get yourself over to the Warholiser like we did!
