My Grandkids love this vegan chicken soup! It takes no coaxing at all for them to devour their soup - veggies and all. and that's saying something! We all know how picky kids can be, right? I guess the flavour, texture and slurp factor must be bang on, lol!
OK FOLKS LETS TALK NOODLES! SHOULD I COOK NOODLES BEFORE ADDING TO SOUP?
My answer is - YES! you should cook the noodles separately ( and al dente). I think it makes for a far better soup. It's so easy to over cook a noodle, so by cooking separately you will have the perfect "noodle bite" every time.
SHOULD I ADD NOODLES TO SOUP BEFORE FREEZING?
No! - If freezing left over soup do not add noodles. Once defrosted and reheated the noodles will be overcooked and mushy.
WHAT KIND OF NOODLES DO I USE FOR "VEGAN CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP"?
I like broad eggless noodles ( egg free), rotini noodles or broken spaghetti noodles for my veggie soup. There are so many choices, pick your favorite, gluten free, veggie, brown rice, buckwheat, etc... skies the limit folks?
SHOULD I USE BOUILLON PASTE, BROTH, OR CUBES FOR MY VEGAN SOUP?
It's totally up to you, I almost always use "Vegetarian Better than Bouillon" brand for my soups and stews. I think the flavour is outstanding, much more complex than broth or cubes. There are three vegan varieties, "Vegetarian No chicken Soup Base", "Vegetarian No Beef Soup Base" or " Seasoned Vegetable Base"
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP?
Prep all the veggies first and set aside.
Add the diced onions, oil, pinch of salt and pepper to your soup pot ( at least 5 qt pot). If avoiding oil saute in broth or water. Cook onions for 5 minutes or so over medium heat, then add your garlic and veggies except chickpeas. Cook for 3-4 minutes or so until vegetables soften a bit.
Now add the chickpeas, herbs, nutritional yeast, Braggs or Tamari and bouillon paste, give it a stir, add the water. Cover and bring to a boil , reduce to a simmer and cook covered, 20 minutes or so, until veggies are tender. Remove from heat.
While soup is simmering cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and set aside, don't over cook the noodles!
Now at this point you can add cooked noodles to soup or add to individual soup bowls to serve. Personally I keep the noodles separate unless I know I'm not freezing any left over soup in which case I will add cooked noodles to pot to serve.
For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
Ok go open that cupboard and find some noodles! It's soup time.
