Pick-Me-Up Soup

This has to be the best soup I have ever had! It is quick and requires very few ingredients. This is soup is a peruvian dish that is believed to make you feel good and give you energy! And let me tell you.. IT DOES! It's amazing when your sick but even better after a long day!

1 potato
1 tomato
1/4 cup onion
1 jalapeno 
4 eggs
1 lime
Extra virgin olive oil

Chop half tomato and 1 jalapeno
Add to small serving dish and squeeze in 1 whole lime 

Chop and add 1/4 cup of onion and one tablespoon olive oil to soup pot
Brown onions on low-med heat
Season with one tablespoon of salt
Once the onion browns add half of a small chopped tomato and stir around for about 3-5 minutes.
Add 6-8 cups of water (depending on how much soup you want) to pot
Let water come to a boil while you peel and dice potato
Once water is boiling add potato and let boil for 10-15 minutes
When the potatoes are easy cut crack 4 eggs into boiling soup
Break up the yolks with a fork and let simmer 3 minutes
Sprinkle oregano and salt(if needed) to taste and serve!

Top soup with one spoon of salsa (if you like spicy because this really kicks)!


  1. This actually looks like a soup that Lincoln might actually drink (he hates soups). I'll definitely need to try this.
