Warm & Comforting Coconut Tomato & Basil Soup

Happy November It-Girls! We are well and truly into Autumn and I am feeling the chill. I'm also feeling that ;unproductive funk that seems to always come with shorter, darker days which means I'm rarely in the mood to cook these days. When I am in the mood, I'm on the look out for meals that won't take longer than 20 mins to make and meals that will warm me up after a cold day out and about. So I'm currently at that point in the month where I've yet to do a grocery shop and have next to nothing in the fridge or cupboards but you'll see just how low effort and minimal this recipe is. If you're looking for your next cosy fall meal, check out my creamy coconut tomato soup recipe below!
