"Almost" Alphabet Soup

Our kids love soup.  The youngest has loved soup from the first time he tried it, and will eat 2 or 3 toddler-sized bowls of soup in one sitting.  Our youngest is a bit more fussy in terms of what soup he will, but get the right one and he is a happy happy kid.  They both love Vegetable aka Alphabet Soup.  What kid doesn't?  And I figured I could probably make a big batch of homemade soup for the family...enter my search to find alphabet pasta.  No luck (yet) but I did find some great ring pasta and also bug shaped pasta! Perfect!

I made some homemade vegetable soup - my "Almost Alphabet Soup" using this vegetable stock as the base.  Here is what I did:

Almost Alphabet Soup | Addicted to Recipes

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!

  2. yum! This would be a great soup for my daughter who currently has a cold :(

  3. this is such a great soup to help fight the flu and cold!

  4. We don't have any "O" pasta in our pantry but we do still have some elbow pasta. Looks like I can make this. Well, as soon as I buy some celery. Maybe I'll add some leftover shredded chicken...thanks for the recipe inspiration! :)
