Alphabet Vegetable Soup

Reminiscent of my childhood and perfect for back to school, this Alphabet Vegetable Soup will delight both kids AND adults.

I honestly started out with the idea of a simple vegetable soup, but came across these adorable little alphabet noodles and you know me & pasta…couldn’t resist!  I also found some  cut spaghetti, so Lipton Double Noodle Soup copycat recipe coming soon 🙂

The soup is really flavorful on it’s own, so you could certainly omit the noodles…or add a different type of noodle. Whichever you prefer.  I thought this was super fun and although I don’t personally have kids, (unless you count the furry variety), I know a lot of you do.  So this is for your little ones.  And you.  And your husband/significant other/etc.  It’s so close in flavor to that canned version, your kids won’t even notice how much healthier it is for them!

Alphabet Vegetable Soup

The first step is to soften the onions, carrots and celery in a small amount of oil.

I used basic seasonings because if your kids are anything like I was as a child, they are finicky, picky eaters.  A little bit of garlic powder, some herbs, salt and pepper.   Feel free to improvise here and taste as you go along.

After a few minutes, I add the rest of the ingredients including the potatoes, green beans, peas, corn and canned diced tomatoes.

After the veggies are softened, I add the vegetable broth and the alphabet noodles.  Cook on medium high for about 9-10 minutes.  Stir constantly as the noodles tend to want to stick and add more broth as needed.

My mom always told me not to play with my food. Apparently old habits die hard 😉  I couldn’t resist.

I think you will really love this soup.  It’s so comforting and flavorful.  I found myself “sampling” it as I was making it, photographing it, as I sit here typing this…yeah, it’s that good 🙂
