If you’ve read some of my past recipe posts or follow me on snapchat (@modishandmain), you’re well aware of my love for the Vitamix blender. If you haven’t used yours yet beyond making fresh smoothies, then I truly challenge you to try this simple, yet incredibly delicious tuscan tomato bisque.

This has been one of those recipes that we tried years ago when we first got the Vitamix and absolutely loved it. We claimed we were going to make this all the time. Just like most things we do, we completely forgot about it beyond a mention or two of “yeah we should make that tomato soup again.” Finally, about a month or so ago I ran up to Whole Foods, grabbed the ingredients, came home and whipped up this tuscan tomato soup for the both of us. Of course, this time around I had to tweak the recipe a bit to omit any heavy cream as I needed it to be dairy free. Funny thing is, this bisque DOES NOT need any dairy or dairy substitute. By just using fresh ingredients you’re able to create a thick, flavorful soup that you’ll come to love. Trust me, we made 4 times in one month!

I’m also willing to bet that you love to have either warm garlic bread or crispy crackers to dip in your soup. Since changing my diet to gluten free a year ago, I’ve found that finding a good gluten free bread or cracker is really difficult. Thankfully, I was walking through my Whole Foods down the street and Jill from Jilz Crackers was handing out samples of her gluten free, vegan, paleo friendly crackers. Guys…. they are SO GOOD! Say goodbye to “cardboard” crackers and get yourself a box of these bad boys. I dipped some of the tuscan seasoned crackers in my tomato bisque & was one happy girl. Even Sean, who doesn’t need to eat gluten free, grabbed a handful and loved them. Check your local markets or visit her store locator online to get your hands on a box OR you can simply order them from the website as well.

    1. Hi Kirsten!

      This would easily serve 4 people as their meal. If it’s just a starter and you’re serving slightly smaller portions, then it would serve more. We make it for 2 people as our meal and have plenty for leftovers. Hope this helps!
