Sopa de Fideo
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups pureed tomatoes (canned is fine if you don't have fresh)
1 7oz bag of fideo pasta** (looks like vermicelli)
7 cups water
1 small zucchini finely cubed
1/2 cup cilantro chopped
salt to taste
Saute onion and garlic until onion softens, add vermicelli noodles and toast. Once ends start to brown add pureed tomato. Let cook for a few minutes. Add water and cook until noodles are done. (5-7 minutes) Throw in zucchini and cilantro. Continue cooking until zucchini turns bright green. Serve hot.
**This soup is also made with tiny alphabet letters. If you can't find the Fideo or letters, you could use cut up vermicelli/thin spaghetti noodles. Here is what the bag looks like. They sell it at my Kroger for $1.
Give this soup a try for your little one or for yourself. It's a repeater for sure. Healthy, delicious and easy to make.
