Spicy Tomato Soup With Blue Cheese Recipe

Soup's On: Spicy Tomato and Blue Cheese Soup

When I think of a deliciously comforting tomato soup recipe, the ingredients beer, blue cheese, and sriracha definitely do not come to mind. However, these out-of-the-ordinary elements are exactly why I knew I had to make this soup. Created by Iron Chef Michael Symon for Pilsner Urquell, the combination actually works — wonderfully well.

This soup is not your grandmother's tomato soup: While the rich flavor of tomatoes is most prominent, it has undertones of fizzy tanginess and pungent creaminess. The spicy sriracha adds a compelling and addictive heat to the velvety liquid. I so enjoyed this recipe that I have plans to make it again very soon. Don't be afraid of the odd ingredients. This soup is excellent!

My bad. The original recipe didn't call for ALSO chicken stock, it called for it instead of the beer. I had looked at both recipes and gotten both of those ingredients, and was at the point where I had to pour one in when I realized that there were two DIFFERENT versions!! So I had to panic and choose one in a split second. Obviously I went with the BEER! Yum! I can't wait to see how it turns out, it's simmering now...

I'm making this this afternoon. The original recipe also calls for 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock...

yummmm! i made this a couple weeks ago and it was fantastic! i didn't use the full amount of hot sauce, b/c i am a wimp, but 1 teaspoon was plenty for me. jessica-i didn't use cream, i just used some milk. tasted fine, but not as creamy as it would have been w/ cream.

is there anything that you can substitute for the heavy cream to make it a bit healthier? Looks yummy!

This doesn't sound so good. I'm not a fan of blue cheese.

Wow, this sounds amazing. I will have to get my houseboy to make this for us when it gets chilly, so he can put the immersion blender I got him to use.
