Default What to do with Tomato Juice?

I have been given several 46 oz cans of Tomato Juice. They're pretty darn big. I don't drink the stuff, nor does anyone else in the family.

I would make chili with it, but I only need about half of the can. At the same time, I would also make a batch of Tomato Bisque, but I'd never eat any of it.

I'd hate to waste the stuff. Any ideas?

I can a lot of v-8 juice because it is easy and uses a lot of fresh garden vegetables. What I do most with it is: buy a case of tomato paste and use one can of paste for a quart jar of tomato juice and I get an easy tomato sauce.

The juice will keep in the can for a long time. Once opened, I would freeze the remainder of the can in ice cube trays or muffin tins.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Gazpacho (salad) - w/ shrimp, avocado & croutons.

Name:  l_R120402.jpg
Views: 648
Size:  17.6 KB
  • 2 1/2 pounds very ripe (7 or 8) medium tomatoes, cored and quartered
  • about 1 1/4 pounds (2 medium) cucumbers, peeled and seeded
  • 1/2 pound (1 medium) bell pepper (red, green or yellow), cored, seeded and cut nto 1-inch chunks
  • 2 large celery stalks, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
  • 2 cups tomato juice
  • 1/2 pound grilled shrimp
  • avocado for garnish
In a large stainless steel, glass, or ceramic bowl, combine the tomatoes, 1 1/2 cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, tomato paste, salt, pepper and cayenne. Pour over the olive oil and vinegar, cover and refrigerate 6 to 8 hours, up to overnight, stirring occasionally.

Using a food processor fitted with a steel blade, process the vegetables until they are minced, still retaining some texture. (This will have to be done in 2 or 3 batches). Return to the bowl and pour in the tomato juice. Correct seasoning to taste and chill until serving time.

When ready to serve, cut the remaining half of cucumber into thin slices.

Ladle the gazpacho into 8 soup bowls. Garnish with the cucumber slices and top with grilled shrimp and avocado.

Crabmeat or lobster may be substituted for the grilled shrimp.

I might be interested in the recipe as well!

Thanks for the replies, everyone. It's not really the "what can I make" issue, though, it's "the frakking huge quantity" that's the issue. I like the freezing option. Hopefully I'll be getting a deep-freezer soon, and will think about freezing some.

Default Re: What to do with Tomato Juice?

Hope I have the juice & stock amounts correct, but you could make it to taste. Here's the general idea.

Red Pepper & Tomato Vodka Soup
Serving Size : 4

3 red peppers -- deseeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves -- peeled and chopped
1 medium onion -- peeled and roughly chopped
1 pint chicken stock -- approximately
1 pint tomato juice
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp Soy Sauce (low sodium)
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil -- plus extra leaves to garnish
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp vodka - or to taste
To garnish:
Sour cream
1 tomato -- seeded and diced

Put the peppers, garlic, onion, stock, tomato juice, sugar and soy sauce in a pan and bring to the boil. Lower the heat, cover the pan and simmer gently for 1 hour.

Puree the soup in batches until smooth, season with freshly ground black pepper and stir in the basil and vodka.

Serve immediately or reheat when needed, garnishing each serving with a spoonful of sour cream and a scattering of finely diced tomato and some small basil leaves. Alternatively, reheat and garnish when needed as making the soup the day will allow its rich flavours to develop.

If the peppers are very large, the finished soup may need thinning to the desired consistency with a little extra stock or water

  • 2 1/4 cups tomato juice
  • 1 1/3 cups finely chopped tomatoes (about 11 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup (generous) finely chopped roasted red bell peppers from jar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared white horseradish
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • Generous dash of hot pepper sauce
  • Fine sea salt
  • 4 1/3-inch-thick rounds soft fresh goat cheese
  • 6 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • Additional extra-virgin olive oil (for drizzling)

Combine first 8 ingredients in large bowl; whisk to blend. Season soup to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled and flavors blend, at least 2 hours. DO AHEAD: Can be made 6 hours ahead. Keep chilled.
Ladle soup into 4 bowls. Top each with 1 goat cheese round and 3 grape tomato halves. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and basil. Drizzle with oil and serve.

This looked good to me.
BTW skunks are horrible drunks.
