Tomatoes are a favorite of mine and in the off season when vine-ripened are not available, tomato juice for breakfast is an acceptable option for me.
Going a step further, I enjoy a morning dose of tomatoes in the various commercial vegetable juices; however, I add a secret ingredient for a slightly different and delicious taste which mitigates the acidity of tomatoes and sweetens the total mix.
To begin my home made version, I buy a salt-free or reduced salt, 46 ounce can of vegetable juice or tomato juice, preferably not made from concentrate. These are difficult to find, but are available. Organic is even better, but go with what ever your local super market offers. When I use salt-free, I add a moderate amount of sea salt since I find tomato juice sans salt undrinkable. If you prefer a hot version, use white pepper or a hot sauce to the recipe.
Now for the magical ingredient which by itself provides 270% of your daily Vitamin A requirement, bolsters other vitamins and minerals in the tomato or vegetable juice, and transforms the ordinary into something special: it is an 11.2 ounce can or carton of organic carrot juice. Voila! Mix well and refrigerate.
Tip: it's just not for breakfast!
