Creamy, savory, rich and full of nutrition, this is not your typical tomato soup from a can!
There are a million reasons to love soup, but above all, I find them to be one of the most enjoyable ways to fill up on wholesome foods. You can quite literally add anything to a soup and it will taste delicious. If you’re looking to load up on leafy greens, add kale or spinach, if you’re looking for a boost of protein, add organic chicken or beans and if you’re looking for a meal to encourage cardiovascular health, add tomatoes.
Tomatoes get their beautiful red color from a plant pigment called lycopene, and lycopene is known to help reduce the risk of heart disease. So, if you’re looking to power your heart through plant pigments, there’s nothing better than this comfort food-inspired bisque.
In addition to tomatoes, I added a few other fan-favorite veggies to enhance the nutritional density and overall flavor and texture. Roasted in the oven and blended into a vibrant, creamy bisque, you’ll love this recipe from the first bite.
