Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 3 -4


The Soup

  • 1 Small White Onion chopped
  • 2 Cups Zucchini about one med. zucchini, chopped
  • 2-3 Large Stalks Celery chopped
  • Olive Oil for sautéing
  • 4 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1/4 Tsp Coriander
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 4 Cups Cooked Pasta

The Pesto

  • 1/3 Cup Cilantro
  • 1/3 Cup Parsley
  • 1/3 Cup Basil
  • 3 Spring Onions
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper


  1. Start by prepping the vegetables - chop the onion, zucchini, and celery.
  2. Bring a pot to medium heat with a little olive oil. Add chopped vegetables and sauté for 5-10 minutes, or until onions are translucent.
  3. Add in vegetable stock, water, coriander, and salt and pepper. Stir well.
  4. Then make the pesto - add all pesto ingredients into a food processor and process until everything is smooth. Or, for a chunkier pesto, process for less time. Add pesto to soup and stir well.
  5. Finally, add in cooked pasta - I used farfalle. If pasta isn't your jam, feel free to add to add 2-3 cups cooked rice or any other grain, like millet or quinoa.
  6. Serve in bowls and garnish with fresh herbs (if desired).
  7. Enjoy!
