Ingredient Notes

Carrots: Carrots are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants – not to mention they are also a very gut-friendly food. They are a staple ingredient in soups and many other dishes because of how versatile and delicious they are.

Celery: Celery, oh celery. Known for consisting of mostly water, its crunchy stalks make the vegetable a popular low-calorie snack. Another staple in any vegetable soup recipe, celery provides loads of antioxidants and fibre.

How To Make My Alphabet Soup Recipe

  1. To a large soup pot add olive oil and turn to medium heat. Once warm add in chopped carrots, chopped celery, chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Add in salt, pepper, dried oregano and dried thyme. Stir with the vegetables and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
  3. Add in vegetable broth and diced tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Once simmering add alphabet pasta and cook according to package directions (most likely around 5 minutes).
  4. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed. If you want a brothier soup, add another cup of broth.
  5. Finish the soup by adding 2-4 tablespoons of vegan or regular cream cheese. Stir to combine and enjoy!

Expert Tips & FAQ

Can’t find alphabet pasta noodles? Look for another small noodle that takes only 5 minutes or so to cook. Tiny shell pasta would work great!

Don’t want a creamy soup? Simply omit the addition of cream cheese.
