Hearty Tomato Bisque Recipe

Between the lycopene from the crushed tomatoes and soy protein from the tofu and soymilk this soup from Lisa Renshaw of Kansas City, Missouri offers a powerful heart healthy punch. “You'll never want canned soup again,” writes Lisa.

"I made this with slight changes. Omitted the rosemary, used Italian flavored tomatoes. I used plain almond milk. I served with toast, not croutons."

"Rich and tasty but perhaps could use a bit more spice (black pepper perhaps)."

"Am I right to assume that the soy milk used is the plain variety with no added sugar or flavoring like vanilla?"

"This was just OK; made with powdered milk and water instead of the soy milk. We have had better tomato soup and my husband thinks canned tomato soup is better."
