Want my fab quick, “Kid Approved” Vegetable Soup recipe?
Then head to your local market for the following 10 ingredients!
*1 package of cubed Organic butternut squash
*1 small box of Organic spinach
*1 whole Organic onion peeled
*4 Organic carrots chopped
*1/4 cup of Organic chopped basil
*1 bag of frozen Organic sweet peas
*2 boxes of Organic free range chicken or vegetable broth
*1 Parmesan rind or 3×3 inch chunk of cheese
*1 cup of Pastina cooked
*2 tbs. of Organic extra virgin olive oil
1.) In a sauce pot heat olive oil on medium heat for 3 minutes.
2.) Add the whole onion surrounded by the butternut squash & carrots and cook until the bottom of the onion is golden brown for 3-5 minutes. Turn onion and brown the opposite side for an additional 3-5 min.
3.) Next add parmesan rind, and 2 boxes of chicken broth and let boil for 20 min.
4.) In a small pot cook Pastina or alphabet shaped pasta as directed, & set aside.
5.) Afterwards, add frozen peas and spinach and cook for an additional 5 minutes then remove from heat, & add the basil.
6.) In each bowl add 1/4 cup of cooked pasta, ladle soup, stir and serve!
This soup is quick & easy, packed with countless vitamins, & is truly delicious! By adding Pastina (star pasta) or alphabet pasta, it is more enticing for picky eaters! Also pureed for baby is a fab meal!
Some additions could be cooked mini meatballs (chicken, turkey, or beef), which I keep frozen for quick & healthy meals.
