Creamy Nourishing Tomato Soup- www.nourishingsimplicity.org

A creamy bowl of tomato soup. You raise the spoon to your mouth and watch the steam rise.

It’s deliciously hot, it might even melt a snowman into a boy! A fragrant blend of Italian spices makes it more than your ordinary bowl of tomato soup.

Growing up, I have to say I was not a tomato soup fan. I preferred to leave my tomatoes in salsa and pasta and nothing else thankyouverymuch. Plus it was always accompanied by my least favourite food, cheese!

I tried a tomato soup recipe a year or two ago since I don’t like to use a lot of cream in my soup (I save it all for ice cream and coffee) I used coconut milk. I was not pleased with the results.

Last spring when my dear friend Laura decided to have me help her make tomato soup with coconut milk in it I was a bit skeptical. It was a recipe from Chole’s Vegan Italian Kitchen. I was in love at first bite!

As amazing as the soup was I like to use nourishing bone broth in as many meals as possible, so I swapped it for the original vegetable broth. I also don’t keep Italian spice blend on hand so I created my own blend for the soup. I made a couple other changes and voila Katie’s tomato soup was born. (Am I the only one that refers to myself in the third person at times?)

This creamy nourishing tomato soup can most certainly be paired with the traditional grilled cheese sandwich. I prefer to choose a higher in protein pairing like my open-faced Spanish chorizo sandwich and a salad.
