Non-Dairy Creamy Tomato Bisque Recipe

On a rainy day with a couple of sniffles in bed, the soup that gets me through the day is a bowl of creamy homemade tomato bisque with a side of perfect grilled cheese. I know on those days when you feel low-energy, you just want something simple but gourmet to bring a little joy to your day. I have the best homemade “beginner-friendly” Vegan Tomato Bisque Recipe that you can easily make with ingredients you might already have at home.

If you need a little extra self-care today, you can turn your grilled cheese into cheesy croutons by cutting them into small pieces.

Overall, this vegan tomato bisque soup is a creamy and delicious homemade soup you can take to go in a thermos or freeze overnight to for your meal prep. 

Alternative ways to make this recipe:

You can add any of your favorite toppings like grilled cheese croutons, parsley, or even crispy chickpeas. Tomato Bisque is such a flexible dish you can eat with almost anything.
