Recipe: Vegetable Soup

We're really branching out over here when it comes to food. Since Norah showed such an affinity for table food, I decided we'd just hold our noses and jump right in!

Next up, soup! It's really the perfect table food. Everything is soft, so even if there's chunks that are a bit too big, they just mash up in her mouth anyway.

1 cup cooked pastina pasta
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
Florets from one head of broccoli
3 c vegetable broth

Pour broth into a medium sized pot and heat on medium. When boiling, add pasta and veggies. Let boil for two minutes, then simmer for at least a half hour to get the veggies nice and soft. When cooled, portion out and refrigerate or freeze for later use. This recipe makes about three 4 oz. servings.

Note: Some broths can be very high in sodium, so make sure you choose a reduced sodium broth (or make from scratch.)

Do you like cooking more than you like babies? Check out my recipe blog, The Kitchen Canister. This week I started a challenge of 52 50 weeks of cooking new recipes.


  1. We're having so much fun exploring the world of baby eating (and feeding)-- this soup looks like something our baby would really like!

    1. Sometimes I feel like we have a 50/50 chance on whether she's going to like it or not. This one was a real winner, though. She gobbled it down so quickly.

  2. What a great blog idea! And love that you are teaching good eating habits so young. Good for you!!!

    1. Thanks, Kim! It's tough, but I want her to grow up to love food and know what is good for her and what's not. It took me way too long to learn those lessons myself.
