Units Scale
  • 2 cups of diced tomatoes, I used 6 medium-sized tomatoes.
  • 1 tin coconut milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt (skip if using store-bought high sodium one)
  • 1 tbsp coconut or olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prick the tomatoes with fork or sharp knife and place them in boiling water.
  2. Let them sit in the hot water for 5 minutes. (Watch video how to do it.). Roughly chop.
  3. Using a high powered blender, puree the tomatoes, coconut milk, apple vinegar and chicken broth until it looks like a creamy tomato soup.
  4. In a medium size pan or a dutch oven, sauté the garlic over medium heat until it is golden. It will take you around 2-3 minutes.
  5. Pour the tomato mixture into the pan with garlic and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally.
  6. Simmer the soup for 10 minutes. Taste if the soup needs additional salt. Sometimes store-bought chicken stock can be high in sodium.
  7. Serve with chopped fresh basil leaves and black pepper
