I like to cook and eat natural, healthy, and tasty foods. I use minimum oil and don't use artificial colors and preservatives in my cooking.

A Winter Soup With Tahini and Coconut Milk

Tomato soup is my favorite appetizer, so much so that I have many different recipes that I make. This vegan tomato soup is especially wonderful in the winter. A hot bowl of this spicy and aromatic soup will surely clear your throat and make you feel fresh.

Tomatoes are a good source of antioxidants. They are also high in vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and minerals. Vitamin C helps to control stress hormones in the body, and it also keeps the body energized and healthy.

Coconut milk, which is one of the main ingredients in this soup, is also very healthy. It can help improve heart health by reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. It may help build muscle, control weight, and prevent anemia. In addition to all these health benefits, coconut milk adds a sweet flavor and a creamy texture to the soup.

It took me only about 25 minutes to make this soup for three people. The tahini adds a lovely nutty flavor.

Now, let me share the detailed recipe with you.
