Spicy Tomato Soup


You know those days when you think your day at work is going to be extremely short and you don't pack lunch or bring that many snacks...and suddenly you're there until way past dinner time. Today was just one of those days!! And, hypoglycemia people, makes you act like a crazy person. It's actually one of the most common cause of altered mental status in the ED, so we're required to check blood glucose levels on every altered patient that comes in.  I started from hungry this afternoon, which quickly escalated to hangry, and then to almost borderline crazy.
That really got me wishing I had packed some hot soup in my bag before I left home! I also started using the stairs more, so I can get more steps on my fitbit. I'm in a "who-climbs-more-steps" challenge with my friend, and I am seriously losing super badly. And, he keeps sending me those taunts via the fitbit app (Rude >:O haha)! This soup is super easy to make and the spice warms up your belly in no time! Serve it with toasty grilled cheese, and you will be one less of a hangry lady person.

  7. Indulge in the warmth and flavor of spicy tomato soup, a comforting classic with a kick! Start by sautéing onions, garlic, and chili flakes in olive oil until fragrant. Add diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, and a dash of your favorite spices like cumin, paprika, and black pepper. Let it simmer until the flavors meld together beautifully. For an extra creamy texture, blend the soup until smooth. Serve piping hot with a garnish of fresh herbs or a dollop of sour cream for a satisfying bowl of spicy goodness. elfbar vape
