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.




  1. Add water and bouillon to your soup pot/Dutch Oven ( at least 4-5 qt) and whisk to combine
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove from heat stir in fresh cilantro if using.  Serve with lime wedges if desired.
  5. Enjoy!!


  • 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?
