I made some homemade vegetable soup - my "Almost Alphabet Soup" using this vegetable stock as the base. Here is what I did:
4 cups vegetable stock
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 cup green beans, sliced and ends removed
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup corn kernels
Pepper to taste
3/4 cup "O" pasta
In a large pot, slowly reheat the vegetable stock. Add in all of the vegetables and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. Bring the soup to a slow boil, add in the pasta. Slow boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, serve, and enjoy!
The soup was a hit, especially with the kids. I'm already thinking about my next version using those bug shaped noodles! Stay tuned!
