Spanish Vegetable Noodle Soup | Classic Sopa de Fideos Recipe

This Spanish Vegetable Noodle Soup is one of Spain´s most classic dishes. It´s packed with flavors, super easy to make and done in just 30 minutes. The perfect dish for the cooler weather, as it really warms your soul and fills your body with so much goodness.

Vegetable Noodle Soup
To cook this recipe, I used Spanish-style fideos, but you can use any small cut pasta you like. I also added a small pinch of saffron to give it that typical Spanish flavor. But you can always use ground turmeric instead.

Vegetable Noodle Soup
The vegetables I used, are the typical ones used in Spain to make this vegetable noodle soup. However, you can mix things up and use whatever vegetables you like. You can even add in some grilled chicken or left over turkey if you like.
