Paleo & Whole 30 Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

7 Jan

It is 19°F outside.  Brrrrr.  Cold weather brings on a desire for warm soup so I whipped up a batch of Whole 30 tomato soup to enjoy.  Unfortunately I cannot come up with a Whole 30 grilled cheese to accompany it, so the soup will have to suffice 😉  I should mention this recipe is extremely fast, very easy to make!

Ingredients:

1 sweet onion, chopped

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbl. tomato paste

28oz can crushed tomato

2 cups organic vegetable broth

2 tbl. fresh basil, minced

Coconut milk

Kosher salt

Olive oil

Method:

Heat a pot with 2 tbl. olive oil over medium high heat.  Add onion and sauté until soft, approximately 4 minutes.  Add garlic and sauté  an additional minute.  Add tomato paste and sauté  for one more minute.  Add crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, and basil.  Add coconut milk to desired creaminess (I used 3-4 tbl. of So Delicious culinary coconut milk).  Puree contents of pot with an imersion blender (I leave mine just slightly chunky).  Season to taste with kosher salt and heat through.
