Stone Soup

There is no stone in this soup – but my kid’s called it that after reading the traditional story about the woman who had no food, but whose community shared what they had to produce a delicious soup. :) This is a very delicious, quick and easy to make soup.

For 4 servings:

4 cups hot water
2 tsp instant chicken stock
2 tsp instant beef or bacon stock
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp margarine
1/2 cup pasta (macaroni or any other kind of pasta)
1 small onion
1 stick celery
1 small carrot
1 small potato
1/2 (400gm) can chopped tomatoes

1. Put hot water in a medium sized pot over high heat. Add the stock powder and sugar and margarine. When this comes to the boil add the pasta.
2. Prepare and add the vegetables in the given order. Chop the onion, celery, carrot and potato into small cubes.
3. The soup should be cooked around 15-20 minutes after pasta is added.
