Chopped Veggies on a Sheet pan for Roasted Vegetable Soup - My Healthy Bites

Roasted Vegetable Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup is comfort food, one of those foods you just crave when you want to relax or warm up.  The weather report is calling for a cold weekend in northern New York, so what better to do than make homemade roasted vegetable chicken noodle soup, and cozy up with a good book by the fireplace (we don't have a fireplace... maybe some day). The best part about it, it's an easy sell to the family because most people like it! So here is my family's favorite chicken noodle soup recipe. It originally came from Cooking Light, so it was already healthy. The recipe is very flavorful because the vegetables are roasted first, which seems to make them even better! I hope you like it too!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Cup Carrots cubed
  • 1 Cup Onion cubed
  • 1 Cup Mushrooms cubed
  • 1 Cup Celery Cubed
  • 1 Cup Bell Pepper Chopped into 1" pieces
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Rosemary chopped
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 2 32 oz boxes of chicken stock/chicken broth low sodium
  • 2 each garlic cloves minced
  • 1 lb chicken breast skinless/boneless - cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 Cup Quinoa or uncooked whole wheat pasta

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Combine the vegetables in a large bowl, and drizzle with olive oil - tossing to coat well.
    Place vegetables in a single layer on a cookie sheet (save yourself some cleaning, and line it with tin foil). Bake for 50 minutes or until browned. Turn them over to roast on all sides a few times during cooking.
    3. Combine rest of ingredients (except pasta) in large kettle. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 1/2 hour. Add the roasted vegetables, simmer 1/2 hour. Bring soup to boil, add pasta; simmer 10 minutes.
    If you are using quinoa, cook it in a separate pan following package directions, and add to soup as serving (otherwise it will soak up a significant amount of broth).
