Quick and delicious! One of my favourites. Creamy and as spicy as you’d like. Can be made dairy free and low fodmap if you leave out the crème fraiche topping or just substitute it. (Low fodmap: you can use some tofu cream cheese whipped up with some rice milk to make it smooth, use lactose free creme fraiche or use some soy based sour cream – if based on soy protein, not whole beans).
800 g chopped tomatoes
500 ml coconut milk
1 tsp Sambal Oelek or other chili paste
300 ml water
2 cubes vegetable stock (fodmap friendly)
Salt, if needed
100 ml Crème fraiche
- Add all ingredients (except crème fraiche and chili flakes) and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- With a handheld blender, mix into a smooth soup.
- Add some salt if needed.
- Whisk the crème fraiche.
- Serve with chili flakes on top and a dollop of whipped crème fraiche.
