Hello everyone, my latest winter warmer recipe is for this delicious Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Croutons. It has been so cold recently I’ve been all about warm jumpers and soup recipes. I’ve recently taking up sewing and the last few items I’ve made have been nicely patterned thick sweatshirts which I’ve needed over the last few days.

This recipe is a fun take on a grilled cheese sandwich with a mug of tomato soup. It comes together within 30 minutes and is a perfect winter lunch idea.
