Keto tomato basil soup is a favorite among many. You may be wondering how a tomato soup could be made keto since tomatoes are naturally high in sugar. Don’t worry, we have made sure to keep it low carb! A few tomatoes are completely fine on a keto diet, but yes, you do want to watch how many you eat- don’t have too many in one day! Our balances keto tomato basil soup is perfectly fine to enjoy while on a low carb diet!
Our soup is a bisque which means it has little to no chunks and is very creamy. The soup is pureed to perfection to make this soup super smooth. Blending the soup also makes all of the ingredients blend together really well, giving you a mouthful of flavor in every single bite. That basil and tomato just makes such an amazing, classic combination!
We’ve made a few tomato basil soups in the past and it seems as though each one just gets spicier. Maybe I have a heavy hand with the chili powder or perhaps its because sometimes I like to add in some garlic cloves at the last minute. Either way, we eventually decided to make a soup that is meant to be spicy, warming your entire body and leaving a fire in your mouth! Of course, this soup is not so spicy that it would be inedible- what would be the point in that?! Instead, it is a perfect balance of spice, sweetness from the tomatoes and herby flavors from the basil. It is the ideal amount of spice!
Of course, you can scale back on the spice by cutting the amount of crushed red pepper or omitting the sriracha. Start with a little bit of these two ingredients, give the soup a taste and then add more as desired. Of course, you can always add more than suggested in the recipe as well. All of the spices in our recipe have zero or very few carbs so feel free to spice it up even more!
You can make a lot of this tomato basil soup on a Sunday night and enjoy it for the rest of the week. Unless you decide to share it, hard as you may find that to be! Check out some meal planning tips and how they might help you lose weight or just save some time during the week! It also freezes really well so feel free to double the batch and store some in the freezer for later. When you thaw the soup, I do recommend tossing it back in the blender to mix it back to perfection. That creamy texture tends to disappear in the freezer but is easily brought back with a quick mix.
A little tip: if you’ve got an immersion blender (also called a hand blender), that would be perfect for this recipe! By using one, you wouldn’t have to ladle soup into any container and could blend it right in the pot you cooked it in!
