Homemade Canned Alphabet Vegetable Soup
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 25 mins
  • ½ cup alphabet pasta (or similarly small pasta such as orzo)
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth or stock
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Cook pasta according to package instructions until just al dente — be careful not to let it get mushy. Meanwhile, heat the chicken broth over medium-high heat in a medium saucepan. Add the carrot, peas, tomato paste, thyme, oregano, basil, and salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Turn heat down and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the broth is slightly thickened. Add the cooked pasta and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Use in place of canned soup in another recipe or thin with more chicken broth or stock and serve as a soup.
