It's a family thing.

Flipping through cookbooks has encouraged others in my family to do as well. Here's a soup I'll "soup"ervise, not make. Cooking is one thing families can do together and then everyone gets a chance to have what they want.

Alphabet Soup - serves 6
Kosher by Design - Kids in the Kitchen

1 small onion - cut into small pieces
4 cloves garlic - chopped
2 T olive oil
2 c crushed canned tomatoes
6 c chicken stock
1/4 t of each: dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, black pepper
1 cup frozen green beans
1 c frozen corn kernels
1 c alphabet pasta, uncooked.

1- Add onions to a large soup pot coated with the olive oil. Cook on low to medium heat for 5 minutes. Add garlic. Cook for 2 more minutes.
2- Add remaining ingredients except pasta to the soup pot. Simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes uncovered.
3- Turn off heat. Stir in pasta and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Ladle into bowls*.

*I saw a beautiful bowl used over and over in one kids cookbook. It makes me think of the fact that even when you make a bowl for one thing, it may be well suited for other things depending on who might be using it.
