Spicy Blue Cheese and Tomato Soup

spicytomatobluecheesesoup1 When I was in middle school school, Alanis Morissette was really, really cool. And I must admit, Jagged Little Pill was one great album that still gets played sometimes on long car trips.

In the song Ironic, the lyrics were all too fitting for my yesterday’s lunch ordeal:

It’s like ten-thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.


I took this soup for lunch yesterday, and there was no spoon around…and I had forgotten to bring one from home. There were knives and forks, but no spoons. It’ll be the last time I make that mistake again…hopefully. A lunch of hummus, celery, and Greek yogurt somehow didn’t cut it.

Thanks to another recipe swap, I was pushed outside of my comfort zone and fell in love with another new recipe. A soup recipe..that was supposed to be lunch yesterday. A soup recipe with a traditional tomato base, flavorful red onion, heat from sriracha, and tang from rich blue cheese.

spicytomatobluecheesesoup3 Once again, Mr. Prevention missed out on this one. But between the leftovers and my uneaten lunch from yesterday, he’ll be sure to get a serving.

When I was describing the soup to Mr. Prevention, he was much more certain than I that it would be good. Admittedly, I was skeptical and admittedly, I was (once again!) very wrong. This blend of flavors has depth and a definite wow-factor!


Workout then work. I’m looking forward happy hour with my business partner already! :-D



  1. My boyfriend insists tomato soup is disgusting. But I think it might be because he’s never had anything other than what comes in a can. I think I’ll make this and force him to eat it and see what he thinks :)

  2. I would’ve just drank the soup down! Oh Alanis Morissette…those were some of the good days. Great flavor combo. here.

  3. Love Love Love the Sriracha Addition! Harissa would be a good substitute for sriracha too, for a different flavor!

  4. I have actually eaten Micheal’s original recipe at Bspot last year. It’s good..but not spicy at all. I think I would like the spiced up version. Honestly, if you are ever in the Cleve area again, make sure to have a very indulgent burger at Bspot. Totally worth the cals!

  5. Tomato soup is delicious!! I’d love some right about now.

  6. Mmmm…this looks perfect!! I’m a huge blue cheese fan :-)

  7. Ha, Alanis! Oh my gosh, I loved that album when I was younger.
    This soup definitely looks like a winner. I hate when I forget a spoon for work. I used a fork the other day to eat my yogurt..definitely doesn’t work as well.

  8. Awesome! I love the idea of this. Yum!

    Thanks for being part of the recipe swaps!

  9. Definitely sounds unique and delish! I hate when I forget utensils. Mama needs to eat! Haha. Have a great weekend Nicole!

  10. I’d be kind of skeptical too. Glad it turned out well! And btw, that CD was the first one I ever bought :)

  11. Um, yeah, you have more class than I do. I would have just drunk it out of the bowl.

  12. I’m almost afraid to make this – it looks delicious, but I made a chipotle tomato soup last week and it was so hot we had to keep taking breaks from eating it! And I’m not known for being especially fantastic at adding the right amount of sriracha to recipes. I always seem to (painfully) overdo it. Hot sauce is obviously my Waterloo.

  13. I’m glad you liked the recipe!! I love this soup!! And your pics were great!

  14. I loooove blue cheese! I’ve never had it in soup before, but it sounds good to me =)

  15. Saw the photo of this dish on your guest post over at Back to Her Roots and obsessively tracked it down. I love blue cheese and was craving tomato soup, and this is just fantastic.

    Love your blog!

  16. Made this as a compliment to grilled cheese last night. It was perfect. Thanks for another great recipe.
