Alphabet Vegetable Soup

Monday, January 6, 2014
Homemade Alphabet Vegetable Soup is a childhood classic. Leftover soup can be frozen for an easy lunch later. Alphabet Soup is easy to make and budget friendly. Everyone in our house loves it regardless of age.

Alphabet Soup filled with alphabet pasta, potatoes, green beans, peas, corn, and tomatoes in a white bowl on a marble counter top.

I made this Alphabet Vegetable Soup last night because it's always a family favorite and it's been so cold outside..

I love that it's loaded with veggies, perfect for meatless Mondays and a great way to use up any leftover veggies in the fridge.

The kids love to play with the letters and seem to forget just how much vegetables they're consuming.
We spent the better half of dinner playing with our food and building words.

After all we are big kids at heart! 

This post is missing my usual step by step photos.

Cut Green Beans on a white cutting board with a knife resting on the board.

I don't know if it's my lack of a goodnights sleep for the last 6 months finally catching up to me or just my normal air headedness.

Please someone tell me I'm not alone in this! 

I was lucky enough Colt snapped a picture of the green beans so we aren't totally picture-less.

We used fresh green beans and cut then into bite size pieces but frozen would work well too. It's one of those soups that are easy to adjust to what you have on hand.

Here's how to make Alphabet Soup or you can grab the printable recipe at the bottom:

Add to a large soup pot:
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 whole Diced Onion
 Sauté until onion turns light brown and starts to caramelize. 

  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced 
Stir until garlic is softened. 

Stir in:
  • 6 cups Chicken Stock or Vegetable Stock
  • 2 cups Water
  • 5 stalks Celery, Diced 
  • 2 cups Diced Carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups Diced Potato
  • 29 ounces Canned Tomatoes
  • 1/3 lb Green Beans, Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
  • 1 cup Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 cup Corn (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Alphabet Pasta

Stir until well combined. Bring to a simmer reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook for 20 minutes or until carrots, potatoes and pasta are tender.

Taste Alphabet Vegetable Soup. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. 

Alphabet Pasta can be located with the other pasta at the grocery store. It's usually in a small box near the specialty style pastas where I shop. I've also seen it on occasion in the bulk pasta area if the store has one.

Alphabet Vegetable Soup Recipe with letters spelling Yummy will be a family favorite recipe.

Who can resist a hearty bowl of veggies filled with tons of letters to bring back fun memories of childhood. 

Young and old alike will absolutely love Alphabet Soup! 

Homemade Alphabet Vegetable Soup filled with alphabet pasta, diced potatoes, green beans, peas, and corn in a white soup bowl with a spoon resting on the edge with the word yummy spelled with alphabet noodles in the spoon.

The kids scarfed down the Alphabet Soup but I was lucky to have a little bit leftover for lunch the next day.

Oh, and I almost forgot this soup is low calorie with only 213 calories for a generous serving! 
Perfect for any New Years resolutions to eat a little bit healthier.

  1. Yum, my lil guys loves alphabet soup too! Love how much veggies are in here and a big bowl of this hot soup sounds perfect to warm up with since it's been really cold here lately too. Hope you have a great week and stay warm :)

  2. This soup definitely sounds yummy right now, especially with this ridiculously cold weather we are experiencing. Fantastic recipe :)

    Happy Blogging!
    Happy Valley Chow

  3. It's such great soup weather. I made a huge pot today too. I love that you make mealtime fun and healthy at the same time Serena. That napkin is so pretty, I'm such a sucker for table dressings!

  4. I just made this for my sick 6 year old and she loved it. Thanks for a great recipe

  5. This soup looks fantastic, can't wait to make it.

  6. Hi! Can any leftovers be frozen? Thanks!

  7. When it says to use 1 tsp. rosemary, do you mean fresh or dried? Thanks very much! :)

    1. Sorry, I didnt mark it. I used fresh but dried is fine also if you dont have fresh available. Thanks, Serena

    2. 1 teaspoon fresh or ½ teaspoon dry (as dry is more concentrated).

  8. Best soup I have ever had! Definetly a family favourite;)

  9. This is so very good. I made this last night and we had just barely enough leftover for 2 bowls. I made this in my electric pressure cooker and just waited until after the pressure was released to add the pasta. I didn't want the pasta to dissolve or get really mushy by having it in for the entire time the soup was cooking. I'm going to play a little with this recipe and try out vegetable broth next time (used chicken this time) and try adding in some fresh garden veggies (squash, zucchini, etc) in the summer. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Best Alphabet soup ever! Perfect recipe.
    Served it with homemade crusty Italian Bread and a salad. Thank goodness for ready meals!!!
