TJ’s Lazy, Kicked-Up Tomato and Red Bell Pepper Soup

I don’t get sick often, but when I do it kicks my ass.  During my infirmity I find it hard to eat, let alone cook. If I have to cook while sick, I want it to take as little time as possible and not accrue many dishes at the end.  This is why I take a break from preparing my food from scratch and employ the help of Trader Joe.  I like Trader Joe’s because they do not have artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They also have a very nice selection of organic foods.

With this (sort of) recipe, I took one of their pre-packaged soups and made it even better.

Ingredients:

1 container Trader Joe’s Low-Sodium Tomato and Red Bell Pepper Soup

Dollop of Trader Joe’s Organic 0% Fat Greek Yogurt

1 T. Chopped Trader Joe’s Chives

about 1/4 tsp or to taste Trader Joe’s Jalapeño Hot Sauce

Directions:

  1. Heat the soup according to the directions on the container.
  2. When proper soup temperature is achieved, ladle soup into bowls.
  3. Garnish with a dollop of greek yogurt topped with the chives.
  4. Lightly drizzle hot sauce. (This will make it look fancy and it makes me feel a little less sick)

Enjoy and be well!
