Instructions Checklist
  • Heat coconut oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot coconut oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir tomato paste and garlic with the onion; cook and stir until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes more.

  • Sprinkle flour over the onion mixture and stir to incorporate; add vegetable broth, crushed tomatoes, chopped basil, lemon juice, maple syrup, and bay leaf. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the tomatoes are completely softened, about 20 minutes.

  • Turn heat below pot off. Remove and discard bay leaf. Pour soup into a blender. Hold lid in place and pulse blender a few times to get mixture moving before leaving on to blend into a puree; pour pureed soup into the pot and place over medium-low heat.

  • Stir coconut milk into pureed soup until the color is consistent; heat until the soup is warmed. Season soup with sea salt and garnish with fresh basil sprigs.

Cook's Notes:

You can replace fresh basil with 1 teaspoon dried basil.

Our family loved it and I didn t even have all the ingredients so dried basil and almond milk were my substitutes for fresh basil and coconut cream. Thanks for sharing I ve been wanting a DF/GF Campbell s tomato soup kind of recipe and this worked great. Read More

Super easy to make. I ended up not blending it because the crushed tomatoes I got were basically tomato sauce already. After following the recipe the soup was a little lack luster, so I added a bit of Sherry, some sugar to cut the acidity and some chili powder for a kick. My husband, who doesn't typically like tomato soup, had 2 servings with his smoked Gouda grilled cheese. Will make again! Read More

This was absolutely delicious!!! I used dried basil since I couldn t get any and half the amount of lemon juice and maple syrup but still turned out amazing. Thank you for sharing!!:) Does this soup freeze well by the way? It would be great to save leftovers for lunch! Read More

I don't eat onions so I omitted these. It was a little too sweet for my liking so I think I will omit the maple syrup next time as well. It was easy to cook and turned out to be very creamy. Read More

Good but extremely mild flavor it seemed to need something else. We used at least as much basil as garnish as went in the soup which helped some. UPDATE: I made it again and added 1/4 tsp of chipotle chile powder then sprinkled a bit more in after I added the coconut milk. Five stars definitely with that change. Read More
