Southwest Veggie Soup of Get Wellness

Well, my poor sweetie has the plague, which I could normally cure with my Magic Chicken Noodle Soup of Get Wellness, but he is insisting on sticking to his no meat, no fowl diet. I personally would cave in the face of an ebola-level flu, but he is certainly a better person than I. So I had to improvise. Here is the Southwest Veggie Soup of Get Wellness.

2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 scallions, chopped 
1 bag southwestern style veggies (I think they were Flavor-Pak, but whatever brand, the bag contained corn, black beans, red bell pepper, poblano pepper, and onions)
2 quarts veggie stock
1 large can of fire roasted crushed tomatoes
1 Tablespoon salt
2 Tablespoon Penzy's Adobo Seasoning
8 ounces Amish-style extra thick egg noodles (if you make your own, think parpadelle width and just slightly thicker, so they stand up to being boiled in the soup)

Heat oil in a large soup pan and then add scallions. Once a delicious oniony smell starts to come off (a couple of minutes), throw in the bag of veggies.  Add the stock, tomatoes, salt, and Adobo. Bring to a boil. Add the egg noodles and cook until done (about 15 minutes).

This soup has a touch of heat, due to the poblano, but if you want a greater kick, feel free to add some crushed hot pepper or spicy pepper of your choice, I would not add chili powder, however, as that would change the flavor profile quite a bit.

Twas good too. And I do not have Ebola, thank you very much.

Well, I had Ebola and it was miserable. I wish I'd had your soup, which sounds delicious. Of course, I probably would have thrown it up, but that wouldn't have been a reflection of your soup. All I kept down for about 36 hours was jello.

Glad to see you blogging again, GG!
