Creamy Tomato Coconut Soup
- 2 tbsp 30 ml coconut butter
- 1/4 onion sliced
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp 30 ml tomato paste
- 1, 28 oz 796 ml can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups vegetable broth 500 mL
- 3 tbsp 45 ml fresh basil chiffonade, divided (see tip* below)
- Pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 cup 250 ml full fat coconut milk
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Tip*: To chiffonade basil remove the stems and stack 10 or more leaves. Roll the leaves up lengthwise into a fairly tight spiral, then cut crosswise into thin strips. Fluff the strips.
Use tall cup
In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the coconut butter and heat until bubbly. Add the onion and cook, stirring, 3 to 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly caramelized. Add the tomatoes, broth, 2 tbsp (30 mL) basil and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes or until slightly thickened and liquid is reduced by one-quarter. Let cool.
Add tomato mixture to the extra tall cup, working in batches if necessary. Twist the extractor blade onto the cup to seal. Turn the cup upside down and press and turn cup into the power base for 20 seconds, or until smooth.
Remove the cup from the power base and twist off the extractor blade. Return mixture to the skillet and coconut milk. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon into serving bowls. Garnish with remaining basil.
