SOPA DE FIDEOS WITH BAHARAT
About 4 servings
1 yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp baharat
1 packet of fideos (or vermicelli)
1.5 cups water (to taste)
A pinch of salt, to taste
Boil your whole tomatoes, quartered onions and garlic cloves in water. In about 10 minutes, when the tomato skins start breaking, remove the vegetables from the water and add them to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Using a fine strainer, strain the tomato liquid, removing all the fibrous and chunky pieces. The liquid below should be smooth.
Add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to a medium pot on medium-hot. Add your fideos (or vermicelli) and stir until lightly browned. Once they begin to slightly shift in color, add your tomato water. Add 2 tsp of baharat to taste.
Allow the noodles to cook for about 8 minutes, adding 1-1.5 cups of water to adjust the thickness of the soup to your preference. Serve hot and enjoy!
