The Easiest Tomato Basil Soup with Cheddar Cheese Crisps on Top!

img_8954

I have always loved a good bowl of tomato soup.  Robust and refreshing with lots of fresh herbs and a side of grilled cheese or a slice of sour dough toast with mashed avocado.  Also so good with a touch of cream, a dollop of yogurt, almond milk or coconut milk for some creamy goodness.  Sometimes I like to add rice or quinoa for a heartier soup and adding some good toppings is a must like crispy croutons,  shredded cheese, avocado or roasted chickpeas.  But a topping that has become one of my favorites is Whisps Cheddar Cheese crisps.  https://www.whisps.com/ made with 100% real cheese.  They are a tasty, low-carb, high protein, gluten free snack and just melt into this easy garlicky tomato basil soup so perfectly and deliciously.
