This is actually the first recipe I ever posted to the Journal, but this updated version has been on repeat in my kitchen lately so I thought I'd share. I'm pretty sure comfort food is defined as "warm bowl of creamy tomato soup" so it's life-changing to have a healthy version of this recipe on hand for winter nights. Because this version is made vegan and dairy-free, it's a true guilt(less) pleasure that tastes guilty AF (and that's the dream, right?). I've been eating it as is, as well as to dress pasta, grains, and roasted veggie dishes - it doubles as the dreamiest tomato sauce.
