Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

This is my perfect, go-to comfort food. I love how simple it is, and the fact that you can dress up either the soup, sandwich or both. The possibilities are endless! Making dairy-free grilled cheese does take attention to detail, though. You can buy bread, but homemade is better. Here's what you need:

2 slices of bread per sandwich (rocket science, right?)
Dairy-free spread - I like Earth Balance, but use what you like best.
"Cheese" - again, use what you like best. I've had great results with Vegan Gourmet Cheddar

Spread your bread, make a sandwich using the "cheese" and toast it on a hot pan or in a panini press. Mmmm!

Serve it with the easiest creamy tomato soup ever:

1 large can of crushed tomatoes. Any kind, just be sure to read the label!
1 tbsp tomato paste
some fresh basil leaves chopped up
a dash of salt and pepper.

Put everything in a pot. Mix it up and heat all the way though. You'll have enough for 2, if you're feeling generous.

Enjoy just like this, or you can dress up the sandwich with mustard, tomato slices, bacon, basil, etc.
