Gluten Free Sopa de Fideo Recipe

Earlier this year, I introduced you to Fideos. He’s the delectable brother of Paella – a dish that is similar to paella but with short vermicelli-type noodles instead of rice. Now, meet the cousin of fideos … Sopa de Fideo.

This Gluten Free Sopa de Fideo recipe is a gluten-free version of a classic Spanish dish. It’s a popular soup in Mexico, Tex-Mex cuisine, and Cavite (Philippines). It starts with the same noodles as fideos – thin pasta broken into short pieces (I used Explore Cuisine red lentil spaghetti for added protein) – which are then sautéed until browned with onion and garlic. Follow it up with pureed tomatoes and chilis and chicken broth and you’ve got yourself one of the simplest, yet versatile, soups around in just under 30 minutes from prep to serving time.

Top the soup with a combination of fresh garnishes of choice. I like queso fresco, peppers, cilantro, and avocado with a couple lime wedges squeezed over top.
