Alphabet Vegetable Soup

Remember how awesome alphabet soup was as a kid? How fun it was to see what words would come up with each spoonful of alphabet-y goodness? Yeah. Being a kid rocked.

Fast Forward about 20 years, and the alphabet soup has had a make-over. Into something healthy, tomato-free, and actually good for you.

Thanks to the Quick-Fix Vegetarian Cookbook* for the inspiration!

  1. Reply what a perfect vegetable soup! I do try to make all my non meat soups strictly vegetarian, some being vegan. I never use to make soups vegetarian no matter what they were, but more of my girls are vegetarians so I try to take care of them. Hope you are having a wonderful Holiday! Dennis
    1. Reply @chef dennis - that's awesome! and needed. i know the hubster gets incredibly frustrated when non-meat soups have a beef or chicken stock. sort of defeats the purpose.
  2. Reply This looks like an awesome recipe but it says corn free and one of the ingredients is corn.
    1. Reply Thanks for pointing that out, Josh! I've updated the recipe accordingly.
  3. Reply Do you make your own vegetable broth? Or have you found one that's nightshade free? The ones I've seen in the stores have tomatoes and potatoes in them. Thank you.
