Hey Guys!

Listen…I was feeling so sick yesterday. I’m talking head pounding, nose running, sneezing fits, watery eyes sick… This time of year is so beautiful as we switch from the blazing days of summer to the crisp air of fall. But with that comes allergy season and other yucky, germy things. Luckily, I was blessed with a ton of tomatoes recently…and when life hands you tomatoes…you make tomato soup and not just any tomato soup… The Best Tomato Soup Recipe EVER! :) It was the perfect timing…I really needed the vitamin C from the tomatoes and the anti-bacterial properties of the garlic I added…

This recipe starts by slow roasting the tomatoes and sauteing some yellow onions and garlic. I’m a big fan of Trader Joe’s Veggie Broth…it is soooo good! You just let the onions simmer and pull all of the yummy flavor from the onions while the tomatoes are roasting.

I like my tomato soup to be a little sweet…just a hint. And coconut sugar and coconut cream give this recipe just the right amount of sweetness and creamy smoothness. I know what some of you are thinking…Eww…coconut tomato soup!!! But trust me, the you won’t taste it at all! And remember, we’re trying to kick a cold to the curb here…and coconut cream has healthy fats which aid your immune system.
