23. Let me see what I can do, I probably have a tomato soup recipe somewhere.

Even if it's not lower in salt, at-least you'd be able to swap out the NaCl (table salt) for KCl (potassium-based salt-substitutes) or gomasio, an ancient Korean prepared salt. It's mixed 50/50 with crushed toasted sesame seeds, thus reducing the sodium content by-half. It has a mildly-salty toasty nutty flavor. It's also a thickening agent. If you have a pepper-mill you can make it at-home: Mix equal parts by volume sea-salt and toasted sesame seeds. Put in a hand-cranked pepper-mill. Grind as needed. Or you can use a coffee-grinder and do bins of it at a time though it tends to get a bit stale.

Okay, tomato soup recipes. I have one but it's handwritten, 40 herbal ingredients (most of which are measurable in dashes, pinches and soupçons), two pages of instructions and two hours reducing over very-low-heat. We're going to skip that one because I don't feel like transcribing it until 10PM and I have doubts that even you could find some of these things. I don't recall it being great soup either.

So I found two online.

This one is from fresh tomatoes. It sounds good. I'm pretty sure it freezes well. Might be good for getting rid of everybody's donor-tomatoes.

This one is from canned tomatoes and is probably not as healthy as it also calls for canned chicken stock. Still, pretty-sure it's still better for you than Campbells and you can with-some-legwork reduce the sodium further.
