These are exactly what I’ve been searching for – fresh, easy to make gluten free recipes! Thank you!
No problem Jessica!
it’s super easy to make your own tomato soup! you just need a small can of tomato sauce, 3/4 of that same can of water, a couple tablespoons of cream and either a teaspoon or so of sugar or as I make it (in ode to marcella hazan’s famous marinara), a tablespoon or so of butter. add salt and pepper or whatever spices you might like.
this is really sooooo good. I was despondent when I found out I couldn’t have campbell’s anymore, but this is way, way better. I hope someone tries it and likes it.
That’s such a great alternative. Thanks for sharing, Elise!

Those are some great ideas. Before I had to give up gluten, I just tended to have simple things like a sandwich and tomato soup. But since I’ve yet to find a GF tomato soup I like, I just tend to skip lunch.
That said, I may be making another run to a Red Robin in a city about 30 minutes from me. You can buy the frozen buns for about a dollar each and then take them home to freeze them. They’re amazing!

I should have clarified … I don’t like gluten-free breads, so having the buns on hand will open up the options for lunch again. Just without the soup.
I’ve found Amy’s Organic Soups Chunky Tomato Bisque. It’s also low sodium, but tastes great. Just an FYI!
Thanks for the recipes! Looking forward to broadening our horizon!
