When I was a kid growing up, there were only two soups that I would eat – chicken noodle soup and tomato soups. They may as well have been the only soups in existence as far as I was concerned. Thankfully, I’ve learned to broaden my horizons now that I’m older. Still, I’ll always have a soft spot for a good bowl of homemade tomato soup. And that’s exactly what you’ll be getting with the recipe I’ll be sharing today. It will show you how to make a turmeric tomato soup that works wonders for detox and cleansing your body. When you think about it, that’s really the best kind of soup – the kind that’s legitimately delicious AND nutritious!
The Tastiest Tomato Soup You’ll Ever Try
As I mentioned above, I ate a LOT of tomato soup when I was growing up. I definitely know a good tomato soup when I try one, and believe me, this recipe might just make the BEST tomato soup I’ve ever had. It all starts by heating up a bit of coconut oil over a medium heat. You can then add in a thinly sliced carrot and one small onion that has been diced. Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotenes, a type of carotenoid. It’s converted by your body into vitamin A, an essential micronutrient that handles several important bodily processes. (1)
Onions are also incredibly good for your health, especially when paired with the next ingredient you’ll be adding in – garlic. In fact, garlic and onion are an incredibly common culinary pairing that provide some incredible benefits for your health. Numerous studies have demonstrated that both ingredients may potentially be useful in the treatment and prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease. (2)(3)
Next, add in the chopped tomato and cook it until it’s soft. You can then add in the can of diced tomatoes, turmeric powder, dried basil, apple cider vinegar, and bone broth. Both types of tomatoes obviously give the soup that great tomato taste you’ll know and love, but it’s the addition of the turmeric powder and dried basil that really take this recipe to the next level. Turmeric contains a compound known as curcumin, which is known to provide all kinds of benefits for human health. It’s been found to assist in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, including exercise-related inflammation, which helps to speed up recovery times. (4)
Bring the soup to a low boil, cover the pot with a lid, and cook for about 5-10 minutes. When you’re ready to serve it, you’ll definitely want to season with a bit of salt and pepper, but I also like to add a mix of hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds as a garnishment. It’s just something I always did as a kid that has stuck with me. It’s also a great way to give your soup more protein, fiber, and heart healthy fats – all the more reason to add them in!
