using diced tomato juice leftovers-ideas?

I have been making myself a mix of diced tomatoes, beans, corn, chopped onion, and oregano to quickly make lunch or dinner with a tortilla or 2 and a little cheese... when making the mix I drain the tomatoes,and had been just letting it go down the drain with guilt. Well, tonight, I drained it into a cup resolving to find something to make with it.

Don't really want to drink it straight.
thought of a V-8 recipie- but have not been able to find one...
saw tomato soup as an idea but I don't want to have to use more tomatoes in it... would have to adapt another recipie and would want to just use milk in fridge- not evaporated...
a tomato soup with beans recipie... anyone got any ideas?
I am sure I am missing ideas here- help appreciated

Few ideas....

Add some red pepper paste (TJ's) or puree'd roasted red pepper and seasonings (basil, parsley, garlic, etc) and a bit of cornstarch (1 tsp for 1/4 - 1/3 cup) for an excellent and low-cal sauce for veggies, chicken and/or pasta. I make something like this but with chicken stock instead of the tomatoe juice, but I bet it would work great!

Mix together with apple cider vinegar and oil and seasonings for a zesty tomatoe dressing.

Combine with other veggie juices and drink (as you mentioned)

Add to soups or stews

Use as the liquid for braising veggies or meat

Use instead or in addition to water when making rice

Tomatoes are acid-based, so it should be great as part of a marinade.

If I think of anymore I'll be back. This was a rather fun exercise. Im not sure how great all that will work since I've really never tried any of it, but I think I'll be trying some of my own ideas. If you try any let me know how it turns out. I'll be interested to see what others suggest :-)

OP here... will do... though if I do not get any major ideas, I may just divide it into smaller parts and use it for marinades or basting as you suggested... wondering how long I have for it to sit in fridge before it goes funky...

The only thing I would be concered about is wheather or not you're using canned or fresh tomatoes?

With canned, the sodium content may be very high... With fresh, then it's not as bad, but might not last long in the fridge.

I think the idea of adding it to a soup would be good. (as long as it isn't too high in sodium)

How about using it as a base for veggie soup? chop in a bunch of fresh veggies, add some water or broth and go from there?

I agree with above poster soup is a great idea. I use tomato's I canned to start my soup with, add chicken breast, veggies and spices. Count the calories and fat that you put in it and go from there. I usually get 8 cups out of mine so I add everything up then divide it by 8 to get my calorie and fat intake.

op here

1:32- which recipie, the one for the beans and tomatoes.... or the soup ideas? :) I just used beans from the bag that I hydrated myself and the mix was even better.... only use like half the bag or less (of 2 types of bean) if you are using 2 types... it really expands to a lot!!!
