Sopa de Fideo: an incredibly quick, simple and flavourful Mexican Noodle Soup recipe. My vegan version is made with Rotel tomatoes, green chilies, cilantro, lime juice, spices and fideo noodles simmered in a delicious tomato based vegetable broth. Ready in 15 minutes! Everyone will be licking their bowls.
This slightly spicy Mexican Vegetable Noodle Soup is quite popular in my house, and Grandkid approved! Sopa de Fideo is traditionally made with a tomato and chicken based broth and toasted fideo noodles. I've switched it up a bit and put my vegan spin on it. It's a perfect meal anytime or if your starving, in a hurry and want a hearty comforting bowl of soup. I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. Gotta love that!
What Are Fideo Noodles:
There's something so comforting about small noodles, right? I think for me it takes me back to childhood, eating salty Lipton chicken noodle soup. It was my favourite soup. My Mom used to cook extra noodles when she made it for me and add milk if it was to hot, sound familiar.?
Now don't worry if you can't find fideo noodles, they're basically a short cut vermicelli noodle. You can use vermicelli, spaghettini ( my favourite), spaghetti or angel hair pasta noodles for this recipe, just break the noodles into, (roughly) one inch pieces before cooking.
What Makes the Sopa de Fideo Broth So Darn Tasty?
It all starts with Vegetarian Better Than Bouillon soup base. I can't say enough about this product. I love it. It adds so much depth of flavour to any soups, stews or sauces. For broth you just mix the bouillon with water and you have an instant amazing soup stock.
For this Sopa de Fideo Recipe I used Better Than Bouillon Vegetarian No Chicken Soup Base. There are 5 vegan varieties that I know of, veggie, chicken, beef, roasted garlic and a organic vegetable oil free variety.
How do you make Sopa de Fideo from scratch?
Now add the veggie puree and the rest of the soup ingredients, except cilantro to your soup pot. Stir and bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for 8-10 minutes until the noodles are cooked.
Remove from heat, stir in fresh cilantro and serve. It's such a rich and flavourful noodle soup.
