Tomato Soup and Arepas

Of course tomato soup is great with grilled cheese, but to change it up I decided to pair the soup with arepas.  I really never thought about making my own tomato soup and decided to give it a try.  This recipe is tasty and easy.  It is naturally gluten free.  Click on Arepas for that recipe.
