I LOVED this recipe! So did my meat-eating boyfriend (he was very hesitant to believe a soup could be protein rich and filling.) I substituted brown rice, and added some pepper, and I will definitely make this again!
Creamy Tomato Bisque with Mozzarella Crostini
We use high-in-protein and low-in-fat silken tofu and a bit of rice instead of heavy cream to thicken this French-inspired tomato soup. Topped with a melted-cheese crostini, it's almost like getting your grilled cheese and tomato soup all in one.

I used Basil, Garlic, & Oregano Stewed Tomatoes.
I would add a bay leaf, some basil and oregano, and sea salt, let it simmer for a little while to season before pureeing. Its good and creamy but a little light on flavor as is, kinda like pureed tomatoes. I'll definitely make it again, just makes you want a grilled cheese!
This worked great for our large family event!
Needed pepper, IMO, but otherwise great. I used someone elses fire roasted tomatoe suggestion---nice. BIG TIP---try doing a pesto and goat cheese crostini with this soup---awesome! Just spread some pesto and sprinkle some crumbled goat cheese on your whole grain bread slices and toast in the oven like the mozzarella ones---wonderful compliment to the tomato.
