This creamy, dairy free, gluten free tomato coconut soup is so comforting, filling, delicious, and really easy to make. I love the combination of tomatoes, coconut milk, garlic, ginger, and curry powder. This soup contains only nutritious ingredients and really is a meal in and of itself, so you can add this to your repertoire of healthy dairy free and gluten free dinner or lunch recipes.

I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs in this soup recipe, but sometimes I swap the chicken for tofu to make a vegan tomato coconut soup and I love it that way too.
