Toe-mate-o or to-mat-o, it doesn’t matter this is soup, good soup

Turmeric is actually very good for you, it has a lot of medical benefits. It also helps make this soup taste great! The cream in this recipe is made from coconut milk so don’t be alarmed. Honestly I love soups, if you haven’t noticed, and I haven’t had a good tomato soup in a while so this is a blessing.

  3. In the soup pot, pour tomatoes, stock, and coconut milk reserving coconut milk solids in a small bowl to make the cream.
  4. Stir in maple, honey, or agave and allow the soup to simmer for 15 minutes.
