5 Brilliant Ways to Top Tomato Soup
1. Candied bacon
Cook sugar-rubbed bacon until glazed, then serve as a strip alongside a bowl of soup.
2. Crab salad
Toss crab with diced avocado, lime and jalapeño for an elegant riff on guacamole, then spoon a little on top of tomato soup.
5. Goat cheese
Blend goat cheese with basil and cilantro and spoon in the center of a summery tomato soup.
