This recipe started out as a research project about cloves. Somewhere along the way, it morphed into a labor of love. While researching the antioxidant properties of cloves, I became obsessed with finding a recipe to take advantage of all the benefits that cloves have to offer. When I came across a regular tomato bisque recipe (i.e. heavy cream, butter, etc.) I set out to create a vegan version of this quintessential comfort food, especially because it is one of my husband’s favorites. He loves the results, and I hope you will too!
