Chicken Vegetable Soup with Pasta

Soup is timeless. Vegetables and proteins, however?  They’re not.  Timeless, that is.  They go bad. Which is another great thing about soup – it’s ability to take in all of those extras hanging out in your fridge.  And your pantry.  Have a couple of carrots looking lonely? Maybe a random bunch of kale hanging out in the crisper?  I know you have half-used packages of pasta hanging out. Sounds like dinner to me.

A quick and easy soup to keep you warm in the winter.


  • olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 4 fat cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • ~4 c. stock or broth (chicken, veggie, garlic, or beef)
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can fire roasted, diced tomatoes
  • ½ c. pastina (any sort of little pasta – I used melon seed)
  • 2 big handfuls kale, large stems removed and chopped
  • 1 c. cooked, shredded chicken (from ~2 breasts)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a good glug of olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, garlic, and the sprig of thyme. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté until veggies have begun to soften, ~5 minutes.
  2. Add stock or broth and the tomatoes with their juices, bring to a boil. Add pasta and kale, bring back to the boil and simmer for another 5 minutes or so. Stir in chicken and continue cooking until heated through.
  3. Discard thyme sprig. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, as needed.
  4. Serve with a few slivers of fresh Parmesan and a few cracks of black pepper.
