Fall is just around the corner and if you are like us here in New York, you are starting to feel those colder temperatures. The leaves are slowly beginning to change and you find yourself wondering every morning if today is the day you dig out that sweater. Although I’m not quite ready to don the cold weather attire, I am finding myself craving the classics of Fall, warm beverages, apples, and of course, hot, steamy soup. This is the perfect recipe to use those end of season tomatoes that maybe ripened a little too long or didn’t have time to ripen enough. Once you roast them, they become perfect savory morsels that ignite your pallet and your soul. The tofu in this soup makes it the creamy tomato soup we love without the fat and calories associated with the original, cream laden version. I can assure you, you will want to curl up with this soup, taking in the sweet, spicy, creamy aroma and slurping every bit of the smooth soup. Serve with Caramelized Red Onion Quesadilla **, which I think are the perfect, cheesy accompaniment to this delicious soup.
Keep warm and cozy and as always, Happy Feasting!
