Comforting Soup

June 13, 2011

I’m a little stressed out. Between working full-time, Nutrition School, my blog, and trying to plan a move to Dallas I just can’t seem to find enough hours in the day. With a million things going on AND a freezing cold office, I knew something warm and comforting was on the menu for dinner tonight.

And when my boss decided we were having a 5:30pm meeting, “quick” got added to that list.

Enter: Doctored up Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Soup and a side of roasted asparagus.

I added some corn, black beans, and spinach to a big bowl of soup to give it some texture, carbs, and protein. Warm soup soothes the soul:)

A grapefruit wasΒ  a sweet ending to the meal, but now I’m aggressively chomping on tortilla chips and dark chocolate chips.

I can’t wait for my massage this weekend!!

    I love your spoon! It looks like a seashell! πŸ™‚ My favorite soup is a recipe out of Ellie Krieger’s So Easy. It has whole wheat tortellini, spinach, fire roasted tomatoes, basil, carrots, celery, and I can’t remember what else though! It is definitely comforting! Hope you have a great week Clare!

    I love that the soup looks plain from a first look, but is actually full of goodies inside! Delicious!

    You do have a lot going on, so I hope you can find time to relax! I love lentil soup – specifically my grandmother’s recipe. πŸ™‚

    Love adding fresh ingredients to pre-made soups. Such a delicious shortcut!

    I’m sure that massage will do wonders for you πŸ™‚

    Ugh, I cannot tell you how amazing that looks to me right now. Doesn’t a cold office just drive you insane? I, honestly, cannot function with blue fingers so, even though it is hot outside, I often bring soups like this to work. Also, I never thought of that combination – roasted red pepper and asparagus! I bet tomato and asparagus would be great too. Thanks for the idea! πŸ™‚

    that soup looks great! I love the idea of “doctoring up” a soup with veggies and beans…so smart! I like Amy’s Minestrone and Amy’s lentil & veggie!
