We found this amazing recipe from The Seasoned Mom that will give a traditional fall tomato soup a run for it’s money! This recipe is easily adaptable to all diets! For dairy free diets, skip adding the cheese on top. For vegetarian diets, throw in an extra can of beans rather than chicken and use vegetable broth.
