During a short-lived "I love Dr. Oz" phase, I made this soup from the Dr. Oz web site for my daughter. She loved the soup, even though it turned out more like a healthy version of Alphagetti.
Also, I thought it was a little bland for our liking so I added about a teaspoon of Emeril's Baby Bam seasoning.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup diced red onion
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced carrots
5 cups low-sodium tomato juice
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup dry alphabet pasta, cooked according to package instructions.
6 tbsp Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp of Emeril's Baby Bam
- In a medium soup pot, warm the olive oil over medium heat and cook the onions, celery and carrots until soft, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the tomato juice and pepper and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Stir in cooked vegetable alphabet pasta and cook for another minute.
- Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a dollop of the yogurt.
