Creamy Gut Healthy Tomato Basil Soup

gut health recipes Sep 16, 2020

Since being diagnosed with leaky gut and blunted brush border (aka nutrient absorption deficiency), I’ve been challenging myself to incorporate as many gut restoring ingredients in my diet as possible.

My hubby & 11 yr old raved so much about this tomato basil soup that they asked me to write down the recipe so that I can make the EXACT replica next time! 

What you’ll find in my recipe is typical tomato soup ingredients intertwined with gut restoring ingredients. For example coconut oil can be used to treat occasional or mild digestive discomfort and may even relieve other severe digestive problems. It improves your body’s levels of candida and helps your body effectively absorb the essential nutrients. The best brands are organic, unrefined, and cold-pressed.

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup


6-8 fresh tomatoes, pureed (local grown organic tomatoes can have great soil based probiotics) 

1 tsp ghee

1 tbsp avocado oil or coconut oil (try these gut friendly products click here-> COCONUT )  

1 small sweet onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 celery stalks, sliced

1 large carrot, sliced

28 oz can of whole tomatoes (our favorite brand click here-> TOMATO )

4 cups broth (your choice - chicken or veggie)

2 tbsp vegetable bullion 

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (my favorite gut boosting product click here-> VINEGAR )

1 tbsp worcestershire (omit if on a gut restoring program) 

2 tbsp maple syrup

½ almond milk or coconut milk

~15 fresh basil leaves, chopped (add more or less depending on your basil love)

Salt and pepper for seasoning and taste!

Step 1

In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine ghee, oil, onion, carrots, and celery. Saute for 5 minutes. Add garlic, fresh tomatoes, and canned tomatoes. Sautee for 5 minutes. Add broth, vegetable bullion, apple cider vinegar, worcestershire, and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavors. 

Step 2

Remove from heat and cool. Place mixture in blender, add milk and blend until desired consistency. Place soup back in stockpot and add the basil leaves, simmer for at least 20 minutes. 

Step 3

Serve with desired toppings: fresh basil, GF crackers, parmesan, salt & pepper
