Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 bag (1 lb) frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat rotini pasta or elbow macaroni (1 1/4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender.
  • 2
    Stir in remaining ingredients except rotini. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and flavors are blended.

    Add rotini; cook uncovered 10 to 15 minutes longer or until rotini is tender.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Vegetables offer a host of nutrients including vitamins A, C and folate to name a few. Be sure to get at least 3 to 5 servings of veggies daily.
  • tip 2
    This hearty soup is a variation of Italian minestrone, which originated in ancient monasteries. The monks always had cauldrons of thick stew simmering on the stove for hungry travelers.
  • tip 3
    If you have small amounts of frozen vegetables leftover, substitute about 3 1/2 cups for the package of frozen mixed vegetables.
