TOMATO SOUP (The Paleo Way)

After cooking the left-overs I still had about 5 ripe tomatoes in the fridge. Idea ! Let’s make tomato soup. A bit spicy and massive. 🙂

This recipe follows the Paleo Diet way so it’s healthy and all natural.

This is a perfect food when there’s a cold going around; the chicken bone broth makes it easy on the stomach and it’s very nutritious thanks to all the tomatoes. And don’t skimp on the fresh basil, either; it really adds a flavour that you just can’t get from the dried spice.


  • 5 large tomatoes, roughly chopped;
  • 1 large white onion, roughly chopped;
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped;
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced;
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste;
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth;
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped;
  • ¼ cup coconut milk;
  • 2 tbsp. cooking fat;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;

  2. Add the garlic and cook another minute or two.
  3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, and chicken broth. Season to taste with and salt and pepper and stir everything together.
  4. Bring to a boil; then lower the heat and let simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
