Living Without's Favorites: Comfort in a Bowl

’Tis the season for warm, soothing soups. Amy’s Kitchen has a gluten-free line of products and a vegan line, too. Now Amy’s has recreated one of its most popular gluten-free soups (tomato bisque) without dairy (no eggs either). New Organic Vegan Chunky Tomato Bisque is chock full of diced vine-ripened tomatoes and thickened with coconut cream. This bisque is perfect for lunch but it’s also rich and versatile enough to be used as pizza topping, ragout base and casserole sauce. Amy’s is on top of it: non-GMO, non-BPA cans, made in an allergen-controlled environment. Really good…and good for you.   More...
