In the book, Tale of Despereaux, soup is a forbidden meal. In our house, soup is definitely not forbidden and is generally loved.
I love it because it’s easy. The kids love it because they can mix in tiny oyster crackers (they may like the flavors, too). For our Tale of Despereaux Book Club, I decided to teach the kids how to make my mom’s vegetable soup. This soup is one of my kid’s favorites (and I’m able to hide green veggies in it!).

This recipe is very versatile, but one thing it must have is vegetables. Peeling and chopping vegetables are necessary skills and ones the kids enjoy.
We chose our favorite veggies for our vegetable soup, but you could always switch them out for your favorites.
The best thing about this recipe is that it was made by several eight-year-olds, who not only loved making it but also loved eating it. What’s your kids’ favorite soup?
Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children.
