Say goodbye to canned soup – indulge in the delight of homemade tomato soup, ready in under 15 minutes (yes, really!) with Anyday. We cleverly employ torn slices of white bread to create a luscious, creamy texture in the blended soup. You can trust us – the outcome is irresistibly delicious, especially when enjoyed alongside a classic grilled cheese.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
