Vegetable soup with pasta

Vegetable soup with pasta



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 medium, potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled, and chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 1 large zucchini, halved, cut diagonally 1cm thick
  • 1L chicken or vegetable stock
  • half a cup small pasta (I used little stars)


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, cook for 3 minutes until starting to soften, add garlic and cook 1 minute further. Add vegetables and stir to coat in that lovely onion/garlic mix. Stir in stock, bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Add pasta and cook for a further 10 minutes until vegetables are soft. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve with crusty bread.


Puree a portion of cooked soup for the kids if they aren’t into vegetable chunks.
