When I first started cooking, I shied away from homemade soups. I thought it would be challenging and take all day to prepare. I was wrong. Check out these 3 quick and easy homemade soups that even the most novice cook can win with.
Chicken Noodle Soup
When I am feeling under the weather, I always turn to chicken noodle soup. This recipe is easy to put together and ready in about 30 minutes.
- 12.5 ounce can of cooked chicken (drained)
- 8 cups of chicken broth ( or 8 cups of water and 8 bullion cubes)
- 14.5 ounce can (drained) sliced carrots
- 14.5 ounce can (drained) sweet peas
- 1 pound (lb) of egg noodles (or pasta of choice)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Optional: salt, pepper, dill weed, celery salt All to your taste. I used 1 teaspoon of each
Put chicken, broth, vegetables, and seasonings in a 6 quart pot. Cook over medium-high heat until boiling. Add noodles and vegetable oil. Cook, stirring often, until noodles are al dente (to your taste).
Vegetable Noodle Soup
This is my go to for a quick easy meal. You can add whatever vegetables you have on hand. Cabbage, asparagus, and broccoli will all go well.
- 1 14.5 ounce can corn (drained)
- 1 14.5 ounce can carrots (drained)
- 1 14.5 ounce can green beans (drained)
- 1 14.5 ounce can peas (drained)
- 1 24 ounce jar spaghetti sauce
- Water -enough to cover vegetables and cook noodles
- 1 pound pasta. (I used penne)
Put all ingredients in large pot. Fill with water. Bring to boil stirring often. Cook until noodles are to your taste, stirring often. I like to put a sprinkle of cheese on top, and sometimes fresh basil.
When I make this on warmer days, I like to cool everyone off with ice cream afterward. Here’s one of my favorites. http://crosbyacreshomestead.com/the-best-homemade-vanilla-mint-ice-cream/
Tex Mex Soup
This is one my guys really enjoy.
- 1 pound of hamburger, browned and drained
- 1 14.5 ounce can each of corn, and carrots
- 1 15.5 ounce can beans (kidney, or pinto work well)
- 2 packages of taco seasoning
- 1 24 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce (or 3 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce)
- 1 cup of uncooked rice
Put all ingredients in a large pot. Fill with water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until rice is done.
I like it with a spoon full of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese and dried cilantro on top. My boys add siracha sauce for more kick. My husband likes crushed tortilla chips on his.
