Tomato Basil Soup

This Tomato Basil Soup is perfect for those indoor days when you just want a big bowl of soup! Combing an array of herbs, spices, tomatoes, and coconut cream makes for a delicious and flavorful recipe. Tomato soup is a great comfort food alone, but an even better one when paired with a well-toasted grilled cheese sandwich or French bread rounds. Taking the time to get fresh ingredients and boiling them down to release all of their flavors is really something you don’t get out of a can which is why I highly suggest to always make your own food as much as possible. I hope that you enjoy this recipe with your friends and family!
