Optional 1 T barley 1 T wheat germ 1 T bulghur wheat
2 T angel hair pasta about 1" long
1 can diced tomatoes 1 can tomato soup
Soy or Oat milk to bring to right consistency.
Salt to taste
Bring water, all spices, and onions to boil.
Add optional barley, wheat germ, and bulghur wheat for protein, vitamins, and minerals. Although these ingredients are optional, they serve to thicken the soup and make it more hearty.
Break up pasta, then add to boiling mixture. Boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in tomato soup and diced tomatoes with liquid.
Adding 1/2 cup soy or oat milk at a time, dilute to your favored consistency. Mix well.
Bring back to boiling. Salt to taste but tomato soup generally has enough salt.
Serve in mugs (with spoon) or bowls.
This is a versatile recipe. If you don’t have one of the spices, make itanyway. The tomatoes have a robust flavor of their own. If you don’t have one of theoptional ingredients, add 2 T of one of the others.
Hint: Bulghur wheat, wheat germ, and barley are goodthickeners while adding nutrients to many of your recipes. Good to have on hand! They allstore well in the refrigerator.
This makes about 5 mugs. Freezes well in individual mug portions for a quicksnack or double up for a microwave dinner next week.
