I don't know about you, but when it's cold outside, I just want soup. I want my insides to feel warm as the hot broth trickles down into my soul. Ok, not really. But, it makes me feel good to sip on hot soup on a cold winter day and that's a good enough reason for me to find some yummy soup recipes online.
It may look like a lot of ingredients, but it could not be easier. Trust me. Let's dive into the cast of characters in this show:
Vegetarian Noodle Soup
Organic Vegetable Broth: 2 containers
Vegetable Base: 2 tablespoons
1 bag of baby carrots, chopped
1 bunch of celery, chopped
2 cups of cauliflower florets
Any dry pasta you prefer
Salt, Pepper to taste
Garlic Powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Onion Powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Parsley: 1/2 teaspoon
All purpose seasoning: 1/2 teaspoon
2 cups of water
As I said, there are quite a few ingredients that go into this soup but that's literally all they do: go in.
If you dump all of the above into a pot and boil for 30 minutes, you're going to get soup and it's going to be good. The only thing I do is wait to add my noodles until the last 12 minutes or so. Also, I do not time anything and I rarely measure anything as well so this took some effort for me to get these measurements. Anything for my readers! (imagine a winking and smiling emoji here, followed by a couple of hearts)
I do not saute veggies before adding the broth to this soup. It's just not that kind of soup. It's the dump it in, pop a lid on for a half hour on a low simmer and forget about it, kind of soup.
Can I make ONE suggestion? Use different noodles than the hidden veggie noodles I chose. I had those in my pantry and I wanted to try them. They are probably perfectly fine for traditional spaghetti but for this soup, I would go with a regular pasta.
If you make this soup, drop a comment for me and let me know what you think!
Hey, would you look at that! It's a 6 year old eating vegetarian soup!
