Tasty Tomato Soup

With a warm and fiery flavor, courtesy of the Sriracha and red pepper flakes, this smooth tomato soup is perfect on a cold winter’s day. The tart warmth of the fire-roasted tomatoes topped with sweet basil is a fantastic way to warm your body and soul! For an added creamy texture, top with avocado slices.
Serves 4–6

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1⁄2 teaspoon salt and pepper
2 (28-ounce) cans plum tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon raw organic honey
1 teaspoon dried basil
1⁄4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 cup coconut milk
Basil sprigs, for garnish

  1. In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Once heated, add chopped onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and sauté until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add cans of plum tomatoes, chicken broth, tomato paste, Sriracha sauce, honey, dried basil, and red pepper flakes and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Use an immersion blender to mix all ingredients until you reach a smooth consistency. After it’s blended, simmer for about 10 more minutes (if you want more spice, add more Sriracha during this step).
  4. Add coconut milk and stir occasionally over low heat until ready to serve. Garnish with fresh basil sprigs.
