Creamy Home Made Tomato Soup (Dairy Free)
Updated: Nov 7
I've made it my mission to try MANY new soups this season. Soup is soul filling, heart warming & mood boosting. I haven't had tomato soup in years...mostly because they all have dairy and Olive doesn't do well with dairy. BUT. I've found a way! I have a recipe that still gives this soup its creaminess and keeps the flavor. I don't know why it didn't occur to me earlier...but the secret to keeping soups creamy is white beans. Yep...it is a great way to add protein, flavor and creaminess!

I was so excited to recreate tomato soup for our whole family...and the best part is that this can be done in a crock pot to cut down on time. If not, this recipe took me all of 15 minutes to make plus simmer time...couldn't be easier!
I made this with pepper jack grilled cheese sandwiches because...well that's what goes with this soup (the cheese was my flex!). But you could also add protein pasta, quinoa or rice to this soup too!
