Alphabet Soup With Sweet Potatoes and Turkey (Sneaky Chef Style)

Enzo loves alphabet pasta so much so that I can pretty much add any other ingredients to the soup and he'll gladly eat it.

Today we made alphabet soup with some left over sweet potatoes and turkey. He claims to hate sweet potatoes but doesn't mind (or understand that it's the same thing) when I add it to different recipes.

I'm all about finding ways to add more nutrition to my kid's meal, especially veggies that he would otherwise never touch. This recipe is a variation from an alphabet soup recipe found in Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. Another good resource is the Sneaky Chef website where you will find recipes for brownies with spinach, blueberries, oat bran, and wheat germ.

Alphabet Soup
  • 1 cup turkey broth
  • 1 cup cooked turkey pieces
  • 1 packet alphabet pasta
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato puree
  • 3 cups water
  1. Add all the ingredients to a medium sized pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook uncover on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Serve warm.

It was so nice to meet you at Foodbuzz! Glad to see you're using video too.

There are too many cute things happening in the video, first and foremost is Enzo. I often use Sneaky Chef inspired recipes to cook for my husband so this is recipe will come in handy.

I'm also intrigued by your yellow pot. Is it vintage?
