In this bold and exciting dish, the hearty taste of turmeric combines with ultra-rich and indulgent coconut cream. If you don’t eat dairy, no need to worry because this soup uses plant-based substitutes like the coconut cream along with coconut oil, to give it mesmerizing flavor. Even if you typically eat dairy products, you won’t miss it in this dairy-free recipe!
The base of this keto soup comes from cauliflower, garlic and onion, which makes it both light and filling at the same time – with the coconut cream and coconut oil fulfilling your high-fat keto needs. Finally, bone broth is also added to this soup to give it incredible healing ability; In short, this is a total “super-power health soup” that also has addictive flavor.

If you’re new to keto, you may miss indulging in rich, thoroughly-satisfying tomato soup. Basically, this can be a tricky dish to get right on the keto diet, since tomatoes are typically a higher-carb fruit, and many recipes also add in flour for thickness.
However, you can get a much richer, creamier version of this delicacy by using slightly less tomatoes, and adding a rich heavy cream, chicken bone broth and some garlic and fresh basil for additional flavor. The result is an endlessly creamy, super-tasty, crazy-appetizing keto soup to warm your body and soul. Top it off with some chopped avocado, shredded cheese, or low-carb croutons for the perfect keto meal
