Creamy Organic Tomato and Carrot Soup

I have wanted to try to make tomato soup for a couple of months now, and finally gave it a try. I used the tomatoes I received in my organic CSA basket this week, and decided to add in a couple of the carrots too. 1 cup of carrots has over 400% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin A, which is important for overall health! This soup is light and delicious. It is the perfect soup ato warm your soul with the cold Autumn months approaching.

Ingredients
4-5 cups organic tomatoes, chopped (with seeds and skins)
1 large organic onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 small organic carrots, chopped
1 cup organic low-sodium vegetable broth
1 tsp virgin organic coconut oil
1 tbsp dried basil
Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Directions
Heat oil in a medium sized pot on medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add minced garlic, and sauté until everything is tender. Add tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Add the vegetable broth, and simmer for 20 minutes. Pour soup into a large blender and pulse until smooth. Return to pot and stir in basil, salt, and pepper. Warm through. Serve garnished with basil, and cracked pepper, along with some raw celery, for enzymes. Serves 4.

Thanks for reading,
Happy Eating!
