Vegan Tomato Bisque

Brrr…

It seems like fall has arrived here in New England.  I am definitely missing the warm summer sun and lack of goosebumps on my legs, but this chilly fall air has been a nice change from the high humidity and 90 plus degree days.  This change in temperature calls for warm, comfort food.  Tomato soup and grilled cheese seems to be exactly the simple warmth and cozy comfort I am craving.  Both vegan and gluten free this soup will make you rethink picking up that can of Campbell’s.
