Sopa de fideos or vermicelli recipe, angel hair nest pasta, first browned in olive oil, then cooked in a broth with tomatoes and onions.
- 1/2 lb vermicelli (angel hair nests). Vermicelli usually comes in 1 lb packages, so about 1/2 a package.
- 1/2 cup olive or grape seed oil
- 1/2 yellow onion, minced
- 2 fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Salt and pepper
1 In a 9-inch frying pan (with lid), fry the vermicelli on both sides in hot oil until golden brown in color. Remove from pan.
2 In the same oil, brown the minced onion, add the chopped tomato. Add chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3 When broth is boiling, add vermicelli and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover and cook until the vermicelli has soaked up the liquid, about 30 minutes.
