Ingredients
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 C carrots, diced
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • ¼ tsp dry tarragon
  • 8 C vegetable broth
  • 1 28 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 16 oz unseasoned tomato sauce
  • 1 C alphabet pasta
  • 1 16 oz bag frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
Instructions
  1. Dice your onions, celery, and carrots and add to a large pot with 2 tsp of olive oil. Saute over medium heat until the vegetables begin to soften, without browning, for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add your minced garlic, thyme, and tarragon to the pot and saute for another minute.
  3. Pour your diced fire roasted tomatoes, tomato sauce, and vegetable broth into the pot and bring to a simmer. Be sure to get fire roasted tomatoes because they make such a difference in the flavor of this dish!
  4. Add 1 Cup of alphabet pasta to the simmering soup. Return to a simmer and continue to cook on low heat while maintaining a simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the pasta become soft and cooked through. Be sure to stir your soup every few minutes so that the pasta doesn't stick and burn to the bottom of the pot (I've totally done that)!
  5. For the final step, poor the frozen vegetable into the pot and stir in 1 tsp of agave nectar. Return the soup to a simmer and continue to cook for another 3 minutes and then you're ready to serve.
