Instead of full toms why not make a roasted pepper and tomatoe soup. Might not be able to have a lot but it will hold off the craving.

I don't really have a recipie but i'll do my best.

Shove some olive oil, garlic & herbs in a raosting pan and heat until oil gets hot. Then add red peppers and toms and roast untill the pepper skins are blackened.
Let them cool down a bit and peel the skins off the peppers & toms. also take out the seeds from the peppers and toms. I get a bit lazy at this point but i don't mind texture to my soups!
Add the peppers and toms to some chicken stock and simmer for 40 mins, if you like it really sweet and a teaspoon of splenda.
Once simmered then blend; guessing you could add cream if you want to also.

If you don't like the idea off pealing the peppers you can buy them pre roasted in jars, not sure of the carb content though.

Do you know the carb content of the recipe? I wasnt sure if your comment about not knowing was about the jarred peppers

Ive just had a look on tesco grocery web site and checked most of the tomato soup carb contents and all are over 10, and thats even for 1/2 a can.
Maybe dip you finger in some ketchup to kill the tomatoie craving?
Or, get 1 tomato, boil it then blend it with some herbs and add some double cream. This will be only small amount but might kill the craving.

This tastes a lot like Campbell's tomato soup, but does have quite a few carbs for such a tiny serving. I tried adding an extra 1/2 cup water to make the servings larger, but it tasted diluted and thin.

Definitely not suitable for induction use in OWL only.

Found a recipie for roasted pepper and tom soup on Linda's site.

BARBO'S ROASTED RED PEPPER & TOMATO SOUP
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 12-ounce jars roasted red peppers, drained and coarsely chopped, 15 ounces drained weight
14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
3 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup red onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4-5 leaves fresh basil *
1/2 teaspoon onion powder *
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder *
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 cup heavy cream

Combine everything except the cream in a large pot. Bring to a boil then simmer over low heat, covered, 25 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat and cool slightly before pureeing in a blender or with an immersion blender. Stir in the cream and adjust the seasonings to taste.
Makes 7 cups or 7 servings
Can be frozen but I would add the cream after thawing

* I had all of the ingredients on hand except the fresh basil so I left it out. Barbo used 1 tablespoon each onion and garlic powder. I reduced the amount to save on carbs. Add one more carb per serving if you use a full tablespoon of each.
Per Serving: 232 Calories; 20g Fat; 4g Protein; 9g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 7g Net Carbs

This wont help your tomato craving but another nice soup is broccoli and stilton. Cook your broccoli in as minimal water as poss, put in blender until smooth. Crumble in some stilton cheese and blend again. Serve with a little double cream if prefered.
