Description

How much fun are alphabet letters in your soup!  This recipe is so much better than what you get out of a can! Just 7 ingredients, ready in less than 30 minutes,  super easy, and guess what, it's healthy too!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 8 cups Vegetable Broth (read notes about broth in post)
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 12 oz. package Frozen Mixed Vegetables ((carrots, corn, green beans, peas))
  • 1 cup small cubed Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Alphabet Pasta ((trust me this will be enough))
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can Petite Diced Tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Pour vegetable broth in a pot.
  2. Add the peeled and diced potatoes.
  3. Simmer until the potatoes are all the way cooked through.
    • IMPORTANT - if you add the tomatoes before the potatoes are cooked completely the acid in the tomatoes will stop the potatoes from cooking and turn them hard!
  4. Add the frozen vegies and cook until thawed and heated through.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes and alphabet pasta.
  6. Add the onion and garlic powder.
  7. Once the pasta is cooked though remove from the heat, cool slightly and serve!

Notes

  • DO NOT add the diced tomatoes before the potatoes are completely cooked!  The acidity level of tomatoes will prevent potatoes from softening.
  • Frozen Vegetables - I like the corn, carrot, green bean blend, but you can use any one you prefer!
  • Diced Tomatoes - for a spicy kick use the diced tomatoes with diced green chilies.
  • ABC pasta - you can find it in most grocery stores. If you're having a hard time locating it I've found it in the Mexican food section if it's not anywhere else.
  • Vegetable Broth - you can buy this pre-mixed and packaged or you can get a vegetable bouillon (which is my preference) and mix up your own.
