“Chicken” Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is one of those home-cooked meals I’ve missed since becoming vegan. My mom used to make huge pots of it on cold winter nights when I was growing up, and there’s something so soothing about having that for dinner. Which means I tasked Husband with figuring out how to make a version I could eat (meaning vegan and gluten-free). And he won that game for sure! Here’s what he came up with.

Soup is one of my favorite things. It’s perfect for cold winter nights, and batch cooking is made easy when whipping up a big pot of your favorite. So check out our other soup recipes, like broccoli potato and cauliflower, broccoli, and kale!

Recipe Notes

*We made a double batch of this (because Husband *always* cooks for an army even though it's just the two of us. So I halved things to make it all a more normal size. It still might be a lot, but it's delicious. However, you might want to eat it up within a day or two. Rice noodles get soft and break up easily.
