Homemade Alphabet Soup

  
My oldest started first grade while my second daughter is at home with me being mommy’s helper. The other day, my oldest asked me for soup. So I made her Alphabet soup; it has become her favorite. 

Here’s the quick recipe:

Blend the following ingredients to make a watery tomato purée in a blender or food processor: 

  • 2 garden tomatoes, large-size
  • 1 garlic clove, medium-size
  • 1 slice of white onion, 1/4 in thick
  • 1 cup of water
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a Dutch oven pot, over medium heat, toast 1 cup of Alphabet pasta in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for about 4-5 mins. *This adds another layer of flavor. 

Add the tomato purée and allow the pasta to soak in the purée for about 3 mins.

Add 4 cups of chicken broth and simmer in low-medium heat for 20 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Extra: you could add cooked bite-size pieces of chicken breast and allow for it to simmer for the same time

Enjoy! 😋🍴
