Alphabet Soup

Yields1 ServingPrep Time30 mins

 1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 1 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
 2 cloves garlic, minced, or equivalent
 1 cup chopped carrots
 1-1/2 cup diced potatoes
 1 teaspoon dried thyme
 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1 cup alphabet pasta (omit for gluten-free class members)
 1 cup frozen peas
 1 teaspoon agave syrup
 16 oz tomato sauce
 6 cups vegetable broth

Preheat a 4 quart soup pot over medium heat. Sauté onion and celery in the oil with a pinch of salt until soft. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds or so.


Add carrots, potatoes, thyme, tarragon, vegetable broth and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to a simmer, add pasta and cook until pasta and vegetables are soft, about 10 or more minutes.


Add agave, tomato sauce and frozen peas and heat through (5 minutes or so). Remove from heat. It tastes better the long you let it sit, but give it at least 10 minutes. Taste for salt and seasoning, and serve.
