Veggie Pasta Soup with Arrow Root Powder


Category :

Like most kids, my daughter also likes pasta/noodles. So, I decided to make a healthy soup using a few fresh colorful vegetables, wheat pasta and arrow root powder instead of corn starch for thickening the soup. I did not use soy sauce as this is for my kid. I loved the final look and taste. My daughter drank the liquid and ate the pasta but didn't eat the veggies much maybe because she is just 1 year and 10 months old. So I am planning to make a paste of all the veggies next time I make this soup. Also, I am very sure that as she grows up, she will love the colorful veggies in this soup as well. Please try this soup and let me know your experiences. Thank you.
