Simple Soup for a Complicated Day

One of my recent trips to Trader Joe’s introduced me to their Creamy Corn & Roasted Pepper Soup courtesy of their sampling station.  The version they made included a box of the soup mixed with a jar of their spicy corn salsa.  It was a tad spicy – I liked it but I knew it wouldn’t fly at home with my sons.  I thought a good alternative would be to simply add a can of plain corn to give it some substance.  So, I bought a box of the soup and a can of their nice, crisp canned corn to use as a back-up meal for a night that unexpected things pop up.  Today was one of those “unexpected things popping up” days.  By the end of the day I was thankful to be able to put together a tasty, healthy meal without much prep.  I paired the soup with multi-grain croissants but you could pair it with a leafy green salad or anything else that appeals to you.

I am very pleased with the ingredients in this soup; no refined sugars or hydrogenated oils or added colors or flavors:

  • Sweet Corn
  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Honey
  • Roasted Poblano Peppers
  • Cilantro
  • Sea Salt
  • Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil (not a fan of canola oil, but since it is expeller-pressed and not extracted with heat, it is safer.)
