Alphabet soup

This is a great soup to make for kids (or the kid in you), and if you missed my last post these scoffins are great accompaniment. My 3 year old loves this stuff. I let her eat it in a mug ( mug-of-soup)..she thinks its fun!

Alphabet soup

2 tbsp sunflower oil
1/2 onion- small diced
2 stalks celery- small diced
2 carrots- peeled- small diced.
1/2 zucchini- small diced
1/2 tomato- small diced
2 small potatoes -peeled- small diced
5 cups water
1 veggie stock cube
1/2 cup alphabet pasta
1 heaping tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
pinch of sugar
fresh parsley

In a large pot heat oil add onion, saute until soft.
Add the rest of the veggies, saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add water, stock cube, pasta, tomato paste.
Bring to a boil and then turn to medium heat, allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
Season with vinegar, sugar and parsley.


  1. Looks so good. Perhaps that will be the ticket for getting my picky vegan toddler to try more veggies.

  2. I never even liked Alphagetti, but I really want to try this!
