Easy vegetable noodle soup

Based on 17 ratings

"This soup is a simple, comforting, vegetarian take on the classic chicken noodle soup, made for weeknights or busy weekends. The base of the soup gets its flavor from ground spices and plenty of aromatic vegetables, so you don’t need broth, but are rather building your own. You could use small noodles like orzo instead of broken angel hair pasta, but just remember that some noodles will soak up more broth than others, so go easy, and top up the liquid and adjust your seasoning, if needed! You could also add in pre-cooked noodles, if desired. Serve with a plain, plant-based yogurt instead of creme fraiche to make it vegan."
