Creamy and comforting tomato soup

,

I love a tomato soup, but sometimes it can be a little dull…this one is guaranteed to pack a punch.

It’s creamy without any dairy, sweet without any sugar and super comforting. I love to make a big batch of this on a Sunday and freeze the rest for the week.

You can serve this with some nice gluten free bread or a baked sweet potato.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 C

Cut the tomatoes into half, melt 3 tbsp of coconut oil and pour it over the tomatoes with a large pinch of salt and pepper.

Keep the skin on the garlic and just bash each clove slightly to release its juices.

Place the tomatoes on a roasting tray with the garlic cloves scattered. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes.

Just before the tomatoes are done, cut up your shallots and fry them in 1 tbsp of coconut oil with the thyme for 5 minutes. Pour in the tomatoes, stock, coconut milk, cayenne, nutmeg and sun-dried tomatoes.

Cook for 15 minutes then use a hand-blender and blend until smooth, stir in some chilli flakes and top with fresh basil and olive oil.
