  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 small red onion, diced 
  • 28-ounce (800 mg) can of whole peeled tomatoes 
  • 1 cup water 
  • Kosher salt to taste 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil 
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano 
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper 
  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk 


  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot, over medium-low heat. When the pot is hot, add onions and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until the onions are soft. Stir often to keep the onions from burning.
  2. Add the entire can of whole tomatoes, including the liquid, and 1 cup of water. 
  3. Using the back of a wooden spoon, gently smash the tomatoes.
  4. Add dried oregano, dried basil, paprika, and a pinch of kosher salt. Raise the heat to medium and bring everything to boil. 
  5. Let soup simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. 
  6. Turn off heat. Let the soup cool off for 5 minutes before transferring to a blender to blend. 
  7. Return soup to pot. Stir in coconut milk and black pepper. 
  8. Serve in bowl.

I was wondering if you could use fat free Greek Yogurt for the coconut milk? I just can't do coconut. 



Yes, nonfat plain Greek yogurt is an excellent substitute! We hope you love the recipe!
