I wanted some soup and happened to have some vegetable stock on hand, so I threw this together.
1 box (32 oz) vegetable stock
1 can (15 oz) petite cut tomatoes
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup noodles (I used alphabet noodles)
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes, until tender. Add vegetable stock, tomatoes and garlic. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add noodles and cook as directed on packaging.
I wanted to use up some more of the alphabet noodles I bought for a previous recipe. I didn't have time to go out for any additional ingredients today, so I used up some stuff I had on my shelves. Fortunately it came out pretty good, but the only difference from previous soups is that it is completely vegetable rather than using chicken stock.
Flavor Rating: Great, it was yummy.
Ease of Preparation: Easy, cooking the vegetables first makes them more tender than cooking them in the stock.
