Tomato soup is a fall staple, but not all tomato soup recipes are created equal.
Most pack a lot of calories from heavy cream, buttered-up croutons and the like, and way too much sodium to boot. But eating a healthier rendition of tomato soup doesn’t mean you have to compromise on flavor.
This recipe from Dr. Lisa Leslie-Williams, PharmD wellness expert and founder of The Domestic Life Stylist is both healthy and tasty.
“Warm up with a delicious bowl of dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan tomato-red pepper soup that is brimming with nutrition and packed with comfort and flavor,” Leslie-Williams tells Fox News.
For the best flavor, she recommends roasting tomatoes for a minimum of two hours.
“Serve alongside a fresh, tasty salad for a complete and healthful meal,” she adds.
