Orange Tomato Soup Recipe

Happy Valentine’s Day! If I could send each and everyone of you a valentine card I would do just that. Instead I am going to share one of my favorite soup recipes, perfect for today (and any day) with these heart shaped grilled sandwiches. This recipe is my own twist to a much loved local favorite from Elephant’s Deli. Loving the taste, but not the effects on my digestion, I switched the heavy cream and butter to a healthier coconut version, and it is just as yummy! Here is the recipe:

  3. 28 oz. diced tomatoes
  4. 2 tsps salt

Instructions
  1. Saute onions and coconut oil in pot until onions are transparent.
  2. Add fresh thyme and let cook for 1 minute.

  7. Reheat and serve.
