Curried tomato soup with coconut milk for a warm-up on Meatless Monday

The weather can't seem to make up its mind whether it's winter or spring, but this soup (inspired by the soup you'll frequently find at WaterCourse Foods) is good no matter what the temperature is outside. The curry and spices add a little heat, and the coconut milk smooths that out while balancing the acidity of the tomatoes. Best of all, it's fast and easy (but you'll need a blender!).
