This Mexican comfort food is made with a base of fresh tomatoes, onions, and garlic. It's full of toasted noodles to create a delicious sopa de fideo that is perfect for when you need a simple and warming meal.
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!
