What Is Tomato Broth?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I have a recipe that calls for “tomato broth.” (Part of a recipe for Panera Bread’s vegetable soup.) I’ve never heard of it — what is it compared to tomato soup, stock or base? It’s confusing. I have been online to get info but there seems to be no clarity in making it.

Please kindly explain and help with a recipe for it so I can add it to the soup.

Editor: My best guess is that tomato broth is a thin tomato soup, and I think that you could probably use tomato soup thinned with a little broth.

Readers, what do you think?
