Serve Creamy Tomato & Basil Soup in a bowl as an appetizer or as a main dish. Top with roasted seeds and fresh basil leaves. Optionally, serve with a couple of whole-grain bread slices on the side.
We all know how well basil and tomato go together. This Creamy Tomato & Basil Soup is no exception. This soup, with the addition of coconut milk, is deliciously creamy. It is easy to make, fresh yet hearty dish (especially with the addition of potatoes, which is entirely optional).
The great thing about this recipe is that the ingredients used are essential and usually easily found in the pantry.
This is how the soup in the making looks like, I have added already boiled potatoes to the pan for extra heartiness.
I ended up filling up the blender, which was apparently not a very good idea since my still-hot soup splashed out. Make sure you avoid this by blending less at a time.
Once the Creamy Tomato & Basil Soup was ready, I topped it up with fresh basil leaves, sesame, and sunflower seeds. The last is optional as well since the soup tastes excellent without any additions.
