Spicy Tomato Coconut Bisque

ImageFirst and foremost my apologies for the quality of photo.  Until my husband comes home and fixes our iMac I am left to suffer away snapping shots with my iPhone. However, photo quality aside this soup was just what the stomach asked for.  I have been a little under the weather lately, and with Jay away in North Carolina on business my motivation to utilize my culinary prowess has been limited.  So tonight I decided to change my attitude and use figured that a little homemade soup could heal what ails me.  This vegan and paleo friendly bisque uses coconut milk instead of milk to give it a creamy depth and habanero peppers to give it a little bite. The result: Yum.
