E.J.'s Vegetable Noodle Soup

  • ACTIVE: 25 MIN

The Good News In this nutrient-rich soup, the vegetables are cut very small and the flavors are simple. "It's one of the first dishes I cooked for E.J. and Meril," says Emeril Lagasse. "It's great for young kids."

  1. 2 small onions, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  2. 3 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  3. 4 carrots, thinly sliced
  4. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 3/4 teaspoon chopped thyme
  7. 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  8. 1 cup water
  9. 1 bay leaf
  10. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. 2/3 cup alphabet pasta
  12. 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  13. 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions, celery and carrots and cook over moderate heat, stirring, for 8 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute. Add the broth, water and bay leaf and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
