Amazingly Easy Tomato Soup with Chicken

I know it has been too long since I’ve posted a recipe! Mostly because now I have a bunch of recipes that I love and just keep rotating. But this one I made last night is new and delicious. It is my modified version of the recipe out of my favorite cookbook “Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook“. This soup would be just as good without the chicken as a side dish or a wonderful lunch.

Ingredients:

1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes, plus 1 15 ounce can (or 5 cups of freshly chopped tomatoes)

1 15 ounce can full fat coconut milk

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 small yellow onion, finely diced

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp sea salt or to taste

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1 tsp dried basil

1-2 cups of warm shredded chicken (I pick a rotisserie chicken up from Whole Foods on Mondays when they are on sale for $6 and shred it up)

Parmesan cheese and dried parsley – optional for topping

Directions:

In a large soup pot, get coconut oil hot over medium-medium high heat

Add in onion and sautee until it begins to carmelize

Add in garlic and stir for a few more minutes

Add tomatoes to pot and cook for 7-9 minutes, stirring frequently

Add coconut milk, salt, pepper, and basil to the pot and simmer another 5-10 minutes

Using an immersion blender, puree soup directly in pot until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender you can also use a blender to puree in batches.

Ladle into bowls, top with shredded chicken, a little Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of dried parsley. Enjoy!

This looks, easy, comforting, tasty and healthy! What more could you ask for? I am eating lots of soup these days and am getting a wee bit tired of standard chicken veggie soup…this looks hearty and filling!

This looks really yummy! Your recipes help me out a lot. I recently got Mark Sisson’s book Primal Blueprint for Christmas, but the recipes are too complicated for me to cook!

Made this dish yesterday. There was some crying involved but that was due to cutting up the onion. I wasn’t too sure about the outcome I never tried coconut milk/oil before. It turned out great, excellent taste and I even bought a rotisserie chicken as your post suggested. Great Idea by the way.
My main reason for making it is I saw your lovely pics of the dish and got inspired.I am not a tomato soup person and I had never heard of “Paleo” but I think I will take a more serious look into it:D Thank you for the post! Love your blog!!

    Hi Dee! Sorry about the onions : ) but glad you liked the recipe! I can’t say I am the best food photographer, but glad they were good enough to inspire!

I just recently came across your blog and have enjoyed reading your fashion and recipe posts. Do you think you’ll ever have a print option available to make it easy to print out your recipes? Thanks so much for all the inspiration.

    Hi Carolyn, thanks for reading! I figured out how to add a print button to the bottom of posts, hopefully that helps, thanks for the idea!
