Here’s a tasty yet simple soup which toddlers will enjoy. I bought the pasta from Healthy Options – I’ll show the pack on my next post. The pasta shapes look really cute and my son really loved identifying the objects before eating them. He even asked to play with the uncooked pasta because he liked the objects. There’s a leaf, soccer ball, rooster, cow, t-rex, bicycle, fish, shooting star, heart, pig, horse, seahorse, sailboat, rabbit, car, bear, bow, sheep, candy cane, Christmas tree and brachiosaurus. They’re even more adorable when cooked because they’ll be puffier and softer. It’ll definitely be hard for us moms to eat into that cute bowl of soup right?
This recipe is pretty much like a chicken stock except for the sauteing part. We adults can also eat this soup and we can use the stock for other dishes that calls for it.
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 white onion
1 pc carrot cut into 1cm cubes
1 handful French beans (around 20 pcs) cut into 1cm
1 handful parsley leaves chopped
5 parsley stalks
2 pcs bayleaf
10 pcs peppercorn
2 chicken breast
2 chicken thighs
2 cups water or more
1/2 cup shaped pasta
1. Saute onions, carrots, beans, parsley in olive oil.
2. Add the chicken and saute also.
3. Add water to cover chicken.
4. Add in peppercorns and bayleaf. Simmer until chicken is soft.
5. Add pasta last and cook for 5 minutes or follow instructions on pack.
Next recipe I’ll post is the minestrone my husband cooked using the pasta also!
