Here is a quick and easy recipe for the “sopa” my grandma used to make for me. Itís a Mexican pasta dish spiced with cumin and itís very, very delicious. It also happens to be extremely inexpensive — the whole thing only cost about a dollar to make!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Mexican fideo
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup veggie broth (I used one bullion cube dissolved in 1 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin

Directions:

  • In a medium pan, saute the onions and fideo noodles over medium-low heat until the noodles become a very light brown (1-2 minutes).
  • Add broth, cumin, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and stir well.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes,or until noodles have softened and there’s a thicker consistency. Enjoy!

A very simple, delicious dish that can be included in my vegan recipes.

I usually do not use onions. Another variation, and it is called 3chili Fidel, is to blend some nacho, chipotle and picking chilies with 5 spoons of sour cream and add to the tomato sauce. This could be quite hot,

For those enjoy hot chilies. You add some ground chili, depending on how hot you like it, to the bullion, really tasty, especially with chipotle chili.

My dad used to cook this. He learned how from the best (Mexicans). It was one of my favorites. His recipe went with him to the grave. I will try this to see if it measures up. Thanks foe posting.

What onions ? - those that are mentioned in the directions but not listed in the ingredients !
I asked the same question and somebody suggested half an onion to 1 tomato - if this isn't right some indication would be welcome.

Looks interesting and tasty, sometimes I make my own noodles but that does take a bit of time. One can even add other veggies to the mix, perhaps some cashews if one feels so inclined and there are numerous Mexican Fideo recipes including cheese and also omnivore ingredients as well. Cumin is certainly one splendid spice to add. Certainly ripe tomatoes growing in the garden are ready and waiting for this recipe.

Jim C, since vegans comprise a tiny fraction of the American population, vegans are hardly growing in leaps and bounds. It will take quite a while to catch up to vegetarians, let alone ‘veganizing the entire world’ which isn’t going to happen.

Reconditioning contaminated food is reprehensible.

I am surprised at a number of suggestions in this article ... rather unenlightened, I think. Just on…

thanks for the information.

Thanks for the tips!
