I absolutely love soup and I crave the comfort and convenience of a good canned soup when I am feeling under the weather, but I haven’t found any canned soups that fit my allergy restraints that actually taste good. This is the simplest soup in the world, on purpose, so that I have the energy to make it for myself when I feel sick. It’s so simple, comforting, and healthy, and I always have the ingredients on hand.
1/2 cup Tinkyada Organic Rice Pasta – Penne, Elbows, or Shells – whatever you have in your pantry
3 cups Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth (Use vegetable broth to make this recipe vegan)
2/3 cup Organic Frozen Mixed Veggies (I use peas and carrots but the mix with those veggies plus corn is really good in this too if you can eat corn)
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Thyme
Freshly Ground Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
Bring the chicken broth, spices, and some salt and pepper to a boil in a covered saucepan. Add the mixed veggies and bring to a boil again. Add the pasta, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Watch the pot the first few minutes, it has a tendency to boil over while cooling from boiling to simmering. Salt and Pepper to taste when you serve it. This recipe is for 1 so adjust as necessary for the number of people you are cooking for, you may only need 2 cups of broth per additional person, you only need 3 for the first one to be sure there is enough liquid to cook the pasta and veggies.
