Corn and Noodle Soup

Corn and Noodle Soup

Serves: 4

Time: 10 mins veggie chopping + 20 mins cooking time

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Well

This soup is basically a spin on the classic of chicken noodle soup, but with corn as a key flavoring agent. Mine, you’ll notice, has no chicken, although it certainly could and sometimes does. On the day I made this soup I didn’t happen to have any chicken frozen so there was none added. It’s not vegetarian though because the base stock is chicken. The good news about the lack of meat is that it’s not a long simmering soup. There is nothing to tenderize but the vegetables and those don’t take long at all so it can definitely be a fast weeknight meal.

I love making my own ricotta. It’s actually a snap to do and then you always have exactly enough fresh ricotta for whatever recipe you’re making with no fillers, stabilizers and other crap included.

Kid Friendly Tasks: Adding Ingredients

These are my daughter’s favorite pancakes. Now, you would think that’s because they are awesome and tasty, with healthful blueberries sprinkled about, but in fact, it’s because they are blue and that’s her very favorite color.
