WIKI NOTE: Alphabet pasta, also referred to as Alfabeto, is pasta that has been mechanically cut or pressed into the letters of an alphabet, tinny stars, etc. It is often served in an alphabet soup, sold in a can of condensed broth.


YOU WILL NEED: *vegan recipe
1 carrot
1 onion
1 egg  /*eggless (optional)
A half of chicken breast /*A handful of chickpeas
A half cup of Alphabet pasta or star pasta /*vegan pasta
1l home-made chicken stock or chicken flavoured stock cube
   *home-made vegetable stock or vegetable flavoured stock cube (to disolve in 1l of water)
A generous splash of extra virgin olive oil or olive oil (approx. 50g), to taste
Salt and black pepper for seasoning


1. Wash the vegetables well . Cut the carrot into small slices and chop the onion into small pieces. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces.
2. Heat the olive oil in a pot. Sauté the onion and the carrot for a while.
3. Cover the pot with the chicken stock.
NOTE: The chicken stock is made from the chicken carcass or bones and cooked with vegetables. But the chicken flavoured stock cubes boiled in water are also a good option .
4. Add the chicken breast.
NOTE: You can also add ham bone or beef bone if you want.
5. Let it cook until it starts to boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for an hour or so.
6. Add the Alphabet pasta and leave to cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the egg and stir until the egg curdles. Try it and add salt / black pepper, to taste
7. Serve the soup warm with some picos of bread or crunchy breadsticks.
NOTE: Picos of bread are mini toasted baguettes manufactured in a natural process using the best wheat flour and extra virgin olive oil with no additives. This kind of breadsticks are typical of Andalusian cuisine (South of Spain).
