Creamy Coconut Basil Tomato Soup

Tomato soup...what else is a gal to make with a million tomatoes?Right about now the tomatoes are coming out of the garden for most of us. It's like a tomatoes hurricane around here!  Only difference being of course that I love tomatoes. Hurricanes...not so much. What's a gal to do?

Personally I can, freeze and ferment mine. This weekend you will find me canning and fermenting salsa.  Lots of it. I literally just realized I haven't shared a fermenting salsa recipe yet!!?  What the heck! That is my favorite!  I shall make you guys a blog post on that this weekend.

But today....it's going to be one of the fastest, yummiest and seriously so easy meals I make. Admittedly, I just promised alot there but this one truly is all those things. Once upon a time I went to San Francisco with Daryl. We rolled up into this little Italian cafe one day. I was starving.  Just wanted something fast so I could get back to site seeing so I ordered the tomato soup. It was the BEST soup I have ever had. Granted I had so many "the bests" out there that week that I truly know I need to live there. But since I don't live there...I had to try and make my own copycat recipe. Or as close as I could get. This was as close as I have gotten thus far (because my recipes are always evolving and changing just like my gardens)
