Growing up in a very traditional Korean household, we rarely had American food on the table. If it was American, it was usually the kid’s meal from McDonalds or a 20-piece chicken nugget box. But we actually had one American staple in our pantry, and that was Campbell’s soup, particularly Campbell’s Tomato soup. It was one of my favorite American meals that we had in our house, especially because you can get so creative with so many different kinds of toppings, from mozzarella cheese to garlic croutons!
