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 has just launched Andy Warhol inspired limited edition Condensed Tomato Soup Cans ……
I 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.
I needed 500g mince, a red onion (chopped), a couple of garlic cloves (crushed), celery stick (chopped), mushrooms (chopped), a tin of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup, a tin of Peeled Plum Tomatoes, a tin of Kidney Beans, chilli, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and oregano.
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 a half a 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 son AKA ‘Chief Taste Tester’ to give it his seal of approval.
It got the thumbs up – #SoupArt. I actually wouldn’t have thought to use Condensed Soup, but it made a nice change. It thickens 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 into 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 as we did!
