{Soup’s On}: Creamy Tomato Soup

We continue our Monday {Soup’s On} series, this time with tomato soup. The creaminess of this soup comes from coconut milk and blended cashews instead of cream, and packs a fantastic taste punch. This soup was completely inspired by our friends at Vegan Yumminess. We modified it slightly by adding broth and a bit more sweetness, but really, it’s a beautiful recipe.
