Frankenstein Soup*


I got this recipe today while I was at Grocery Outlet. Every Monday they have a new recipe for the week and they are always great, nutritious, using inexpensive ingredients and easy to make. Today it was on a Halloween theme, with funny representations of Frankenstein made into a soup. Would be a great one to cook with your children, and have fun as each ingredient is put in the cauldron pot. Give this one a try.


6 cups stock (Chicken, beef, or vegetable)
2 large potatoes, peeled and sliced (Teeth)
2 large carrots, sliced into sticks (Witches fingers)
2 stalks celery, sliced (Gremlin eyebrows)
1 can or frozen pkg. of pearl onions (Eyeballs)
1/2 cup frozen peas (Frog warts)
1 cup elbow macaroni (Brains)
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Put all ingredients (EXCEPT macaroni) into a large pot and cook over medium heat until the vegetables are tender. Add the macaroni 15 minutes before serving.


Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches sliced diagonally, then scallop shapes cut out the of the long side to make “Batwiches” ~ Happy Halloween!

Obviously this is a very flexible soup and you can add just about anything you might have leftover in the refridgerator, i.e. green beans, corn, tomatoes, various spices, etc. You can make up funny names for the ingredients. Also makes a good base for adding chicken or other meat.
