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.
- 7 cups Water
- 2 and 1/2 tbsps Better than Bouillon Vegetarian No Chicken soup Base ( there is an organic no oil variety available but only the vegetable flavour) probably tasty?
- 1 small yellow onion, peeled and rough chopped
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 can (284 ml) Rotel tomatoes & green chilies, I use the mild variety
- 1 can (127 ml) chopped green chilies
- 1 and 3/4 cup Fideo Noodles, I use vermicelli or spaghettini noodles, broken into roughly one inch pieces.
- 1/2 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 2 tbsps or more chopped cilantro ( optional)
- lime wedges for serving ( optional)
- Add water and bouillon to your soup pot/Dutch Oven ( at least 4-5 qt) and whisk to combine
- Next add the garlic, chopped onion and half the Rotel tomatoes and half the green chilies, plus one cup of the veggie stock from your soup pot- to your Nutra bullet or Blender. Blend till smooth.
- Now add the veggie puree, rest of canned tomatoes and chilies and rest of soup ingredients (except cilantro and lime) to your soup pot . Stir and Bring the soup to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook 8-10 minutes or until noodles are done.
- Remove from heat stir in fresh cilantro if using. Serve with lime wedges if desired.
- 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.
- Feel free to puree all the tomatoes and chilies for the soup. I just like a little texture in my soup so I left some as is.
- For gluten free just add gluten free noodles?
