Sopa de fideo is a simple yet comforting pasta soup that is a staple in every Mexican household. It’s a super easy 6-ingredient, short angel hair-style pasta in a light and savory tomato broth.


Units Scale
  • 8 oz Fideo pasta (see above)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or any neutral oil)
  • 3 roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 8 cups vegetable broth


  1. Add tomatoes, onion, garlic, and about 1/2 cup of vegetable broth to a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Place a pot on medium heat and add oil. Once oil is hot, add the fideo and fry until golden brown. Move frequently to avoid burning!
  3. Once fideo is golden brown, add the tomato puree and let simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour vegetable broth into the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, quickly reduce to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes until fideo is soft but not breaking apart.
  5. Taste and add salt as needed. Serve with a bit of cilantro and a side of tortillas.
