Elmo's Red Vegetable Alphabet Soup

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

  1. In a medium soup pot, warm the olive oil over medium heat and cook the onions, celery and carrots until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomato juice and pepper and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in cooked vegetable alphabet pasta and cook for another minute.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a dollop of the yogurt.
