Copycat Zio’s Tomato Florentine Soup

zio's tomato florentine soup

One of my favorite dinners or even lunch in the fall and winter is grilled cheese and tomato soup.  The ultimate tip to having the perfect grilled cheese and tomato soup is the soup!  The condensed tomato out of the can is just not the same as having homemade tomato soup.

One that we have often is my Cream of Tomato Soup; however, this particular time I decided to try a recipe for the Zio’s Tomato Florentine that I found on Food.com.

This soup includes flour and it’s that one little drop of flour that makes me unable to eat it at the restaurant; however, it is so easy to make at home with a gluten free flour alternative!  All I did was a simple switch of flour and my guest could not tell the difference.

Another change I made to this recipe was substituting fat free 1/2 & 1/2 instead of the heavy cream.  It did make it a bit less creamy than the original but the savings on fat and calories made it worth it plus it was still amazing!
