You may recall the vegetable stock that I made recently. The recipe made plenty of stock, and my plan was to make a few different soups with the vegetable base just to see what new flavours and favourites we come up with. This time around I wanted to try those bug noodles that I found, and I wanted to make this version of vegetable soup a to look a little more like the canned version that we usually buy. Here is what I did:
4 cups vegetable stock
1 can diced tomatoes, including juice (I used a salt-reduced version)
3 carrots, peeled and 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 "bug" pasta
In a large pot, slowly reheat the vegetable stock. Add in all of the vegetables on the ingredient list and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. Bring the soup to a slow boil, add in the "bug" pasta. Slow boil for about 4-6 minutes, or until the pasta is done to your liking. Remove from heat, serve, and enjoy!
This version of the vegetable soup looks a lot like the canned one. It was delicious. So fresh, so colourful. It was a true hit with my family!
