Hereof, how do you keep tomato soup from curdling?
Add a little heavy cream to the soup to help prevent curdling. In milk-based soups, add acidic ingredients, such as tomatoes and lemon juice, to the milk mixture. Do not add the milk to the acidic ingredients. Make a thin flour and water paste to mix into the milk before adding acidic ingredients.
Secondly, why does milk separate in tomato soup? The protein in milk is likely to clump together when it is exposed to acid or salt, causing curdling. There are a number of things one can try to help avoid this situation: For cream of tomato soup, try adding the tomato to the milk rather than the opposite, having both the milk and tomato hot when they are combined.
Likewise, can you eat curdled tomato soup?
Curdled tomato soup is still edible. There's nothing about it that will hurt you. It's just not as good, because the texture is off.

Saving A Curdled Dish The simplest way to do that is with a starch thickener. Whisk flour or cornstarch into a small saucepan of cold milk and bring it to a simmer. As it thickens, slowly whisk in your salvaged sauce.
