Have you ever heard of Sopa de Fideo (Mexican Noodle Soup)?
I sure hadn’t, until a couple of years ago when I stumbled upon two easy recipes by that title and decided to give them a try.
Sopa de Fideo is a flavorful, tomato-based soup which is made with toasted noodles. Toasting the dry spaghetti noodles in a skillet for a few minutes before adding them to the soup browns them up nicely and adds a distinctive flavor.
The two recipes I tried differ slightly, but both call for canned tomatoes, onions, garlic, and vegetable broth as the base.
I probably add too many noodles. You can see by my photo that it looks more like a spaghetti dish than a soup!
Hubby says something about this recipe reminds him of eating Franco-American canned spaghetti as a child (but in a good way!) Who can forget RavioliOs and Uh-Oh SpaghettiOs? Of course the biggest difference is that these recipes are HEALTHY. Give these soups a try and see if you agree!
By the way, do you know what goes great with tomato-based soups? Vegan grilled cheese sandwiches! Watch my video here for how to make delicious ‘Colby Cheeze’ sandwiches.
