    Red Hot Tomato Soup

    This soup is ready in 15 minutes and really packs a punch, providing 189 percent of your recommended daily dosage of vitamin C with each serving. It’s also loaded with beta carotene from the peppers, tomatoes, and orange juice. Tomatoes also contain lycopene, which has been shown to have protective effects against prostate cancer. The extra-virgin olive oil helps in the absorption of this important phytochemical. Seasonings such as cayenne pepper and cinnamon also help with heart health. Enjoy this soup for lunch or dinner along with fresh whole grain bread or dinner rolls. To save time, use a food processor to chop garlic, ginger, onions, and bell pepper.
