This soup is something that my mother and grandmother used to always make for me as a kid when it was cold out or when I was feeling under the weather, and we are stoked to share a version made entirely from plants!An easy and traditional Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup that is perfect for the cold winter weather and is guaranteed to help you feel cozy! #chickennoodlesoup #veganchicken #veganized #sweetsimplevegan #vegansoup #entree #veganrecipes #easyvegan #simplerecipeAn easy and traditional Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup that is perfect for the cold winter weather and is guaranteed to help you feel cozy! #chickennoodlesoup #veganchicken #veganized #sweetsimplevegan #vegansoup #entree #veganrecipes #easyvegan #simplerecipeWe found that putting vegan chicken strips straight into the soup from the package causes them to become mushy and chewy, an undesirable texture in our opinion for this soup. We found that if you roast the vegan chicken strips first and then shred them, they are much more desirable AND closer in texture to nonvegan chicken that is usually used for this soup.

If you prefer not to use vegan chicken, you can opt for tofu or even chickpeas and roast them the same way we did with the chicken, sans the shredding. We do recommend you press the tofu beforehand!

Description

This vegan chicken noodle soup is easy to make, jam-packed with flavor and is guaranteed to hit the spot during the cold winter months!


Ingredients

For the soup:

  • 1 (9 oz.) bag Beyond Meat Grilled Chicken Strips*
  • 910 cups vegetable broth made from Better Than Boullion Vegan Chicken Base*
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning or poultry seasoning, divided in half
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  •  cups gluten-free fusilli (or pasta of choice)
  • 1/2 tablespoon chickpea miso
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Serve with (optional):

  • Fresh thyme, roughly chopped
  • Lemon wedges
  • Crackers or bread


Instructions

  1. Prepare the chicken: Remove the chicken strips from the freezer and allow them to thaw on the counter for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a small bowl, toss together the Beyond Meat, 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth. Spread onto the baking tray and roast for 15 minutes or until golden, flipping halfway through. Cool completely, then pull apart and shred by hand (see photos). Set aside.
  2. Prepare the soup: In a large pot over medium heat, add 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable broth. Once heated, add the carrots, celery, onions, and garlic, and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the bay leaf, remaining Italian seasoning, and thyme, and sauté for a minute more, then pour in the remaining vegetable broth. Bring to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook according to the packaging directions. Ours took about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, take about 1/4 cup of the broth and add it to a small bowl. Whisk in the miso until smooth and then add it back into the soup. Add in the shredded chicken, season with salt and pepper to taste, and adjust seasonings as desired.
  5. Serve with fresh thyme, a wedge of lemon and vegan crackers or bread.

    Delicious!

    Added red pepper for extra kick but otherwise followed the recipe and used the same ingredients. Will makes again

  2. Annie says:

    I skipped the miso, bay leaf, thyme, and vegan chicken. I don’t usually buy faux meats because I don’t care for them and they’re expensive. The only miso I could find was too expensive so I skipped it but it probably would have been really good. I added extra carrots and noodles and used a little less water. It was really good and something that will be a staple. The noodles were great and even though I forgot about them on the stove – they were still chewy and not overdone. I used brown rice fusilli. Can’t believe I’ve never made this before it’s so fast and easy.

  3. Sheena says:

    I did this in the instant pot and subbed the fusilli for egg noodles because that’s what I had on hand. Turned out fantastic will definitely make again!

  4. Barb says:

    This was so good! I skipped the miso because I didn’t know what it was or where to find it (too lazy to search) but it was delicious without it. My broth was a little darker because my store only had The Better Than Bouillon Seasoned Vegetable Base. Thank you!

    I don’t see how to correct my previous post. If you use it, could you just put my name as Barb? Thanks!
