This one is just a little reference post for me – one of my kids’ favourite meals – noodle soup with vegetables.
It’s pretty basic to make, and you can chuck in TONS of veggies! I also add in fish slices, or thinly-sliced chicken (depending on what I’ve got available).
Here’s the basic recipe:
Noodle soup with vegetables
- Cook fresh egg noodles to packet instructions (usually it’s dip in boiling water for 30 seconds) and drain well.
- Heat up homemade soup stock* in a small pot. Drop in chopped vegetables like carrots, green leafy veggies, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, etc, until soft.
- Drop in fish, chicken, or any other meat and simmer until cooked.
- Add in drained noodles and turn off the heat.
*Homemade soup stock made from boiling veggies like cabbage, carrot, onion, tomato, corn (ie. anything I can get my hands on) and either pork or chicken. Boil for 1-2 hours, strain out all the ingredients and store the soup in small containers in the fridge or freezer for later use.
My kids eat this meal a couple of times a week because it’s incredibly nutritious, and they gobble it up easily. Win-win! Hope it works for you too!
