You love tomato soup but not a fan of canned soup? Try out this absolutely delicious keto soup that's definitely a keeper. If you want to give it a little twist to make it your own, here are some alternatives that you can use:
You can use chicken broth or vegetable broth instead of water and blend until you've reached your desired consistency. Add a bit of coconut milk if it's not creamy enough but note that it will increase the soup's carb count.
Fresh basil works perfect for this recipe (dried basil is fine too). Feel free to play with different herbs and spices such as Herbs de Provence, bay leaf, a dash of garlic powder or onion powder, red curry paste etc. Whatever fits your taste buds!
