Equipment

  • Blender
  • Large stockpot
  • Mesh Strainer

Ingredients
 

  • 5 Roma tomatoes ($0.79)
  • 3 cloves garlic ($0.12)
  • ½ medium white onion, chopped ($0.12)
  • 6 cups vegetable broth ($0.40)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon neutral vegetable oil ($0.17)
  • 200 g (1 package) "fideo" pasta* ($0.22)
  • Salt and pepper to taste ($0.02)

Garnishes optional

  • Lime wedges
  • Avocado
  • Queso fresco
  • Cilantro or parsley

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 450°F, and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread the tomatoes out evenly on the foil and roast for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway. If your tomatoes are large, you can cut them in half lengthwise to reduce the time.
  • Add the roasted tomatoes, chopped onions, and garlic cloves to a blender and mix on high until smooth. Prepare 6 cups of vegetable broth (we use bouillon cubes, but pre-mixed stock also works). Set both of those aside.
  • Heat 1 ½ tablespoon oil over medium in a large stockpot. Add the dry noodles in and cook them while stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown and fragrant.
  • Pour the tomato mixture through a strainer into the pot and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Add the vegetable broth and bring the soup to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 10 minutes, or until the noodles are al dente.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve this soup immediately with garnishes of your choice (we enjoy queso fresco, cubed avocado, herbs, or lime). Enjoy!
