Roasted Vegetable Rosemary Chicken Soup
(Bev Jones, Brunswick, Missouri,   JANUARY 2006)

  • cup (1-inch) cubed carrot 
  • 1 cup (1-inch) cubed onion 
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms 
  • 1 cup (1-inch) pieces celery 
  • 1 cup (1-inch) pieces red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil 
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 4 (14-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth $
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 
  • 2 cups uncooked whole wheat rotini pasta


Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; drizzle with oil, and toss well to coat. Arrange vegetable mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan lined with foil. Bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. 

Combine water and next 5 ingredients (through chicken) in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Add roasted vegetables; simmer 30 minutes. Bring soup to a boil. Add pasta; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

To have Rosemary Peasant Bread, along with homemade soup sounds yummy, too!

I did a post awhile back on Barefoot Books Kid's Kitchen. They offer a neat box of recipe cards for children, mostly vegan recipes, you can get here.

Do you have a favorite recipe that includes rosemary?  

I would have to say, Duck Soup by Jackie Urbanovic, is one of my favorites! I posted a book review on my other blog and a recipe for a Greek soup recipe at LadyD Books.
