'I love this tomato soup because it's creamy without any dairy, sweet without any sugar and super comforting. You can serve this with some nice gluten free bread or a baked sweet potato.' says Madeleine Shaw.


  • 400g ripe tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 600ml fresh chicken stock (or veggie stock) made with BRITA filtered water
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 50g sun-dried tomatoes
  • Chilli flakes, basil and olive oil to serve

This soup also makes a great starter, as part of a 2 or 3-course meal!


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/335F/Gas mark 3.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into half, melt 3 tbsp of coconut oil and pour it over the tomatoes with a large pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Keep the skin on the garlic and just bash each clove slightly to release its juices.
  4. Place the tomatoes on a roasting tray with the garlic cloves scattered. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Just before the tomatoes are done, cut up your shallots and fry them in 1 tbsp of coconut oil with the thyme for 5 minutes. Pour in the tomatoes, fresh stock, coconut milk, cayenne, nutmeg and sun-dried tomatoes.
  6. Cook for 15 minutes then use a hand-blender and blend until smooth, stir in some chilli flakes and top with fresh basil and olive oil.
