  • Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, and water into the blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • In a stock pot, heat oil.
  • Add vermicelli noodles and lightly toast them. About 3-4 minutes. Do not let them burn.
  • Add the tomato mixture into the pot along with the chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Let simmer for 10 more minutes until the noodles are tender.
  • Serve and enjoy.


Add more water to the blender, if necessary. 
The noodles will soak up the broth. If not serving right away, reserve some of the broth. Mix broth with the soup right before serving
Instead of homemade tomato sauce: Use 1 8-ounce can of tomato sauce and blend with onion and garlic. 
Instead of chicken broth: Use 1 chicken bouillon cube + 6 cups water.
For a completely vegan recipe: Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
