-Vegan Not Chicken Noodle Soup-

Sharing is caring!

Vegan not chicken noodle soup is just like the classic we are all used to but without the chicken. I love turning regular classics into vegan recipes. I have served this soup to non-vegan people and they always love it and can’t believe it’s vegan.. whenever I say that the I can’t believe it’s not butter commercial pops in my head, anyone else? Anyway, onto the recipe!

It does have a chicken subsistute which you wouldn’t have to put in, but it makes it that much tastier. I use the vegan chicken strips, sounds kind of weird in a soup, but boy is it delicious. This vegan not chicken noodle soup is easy to make and perfect for those days you aren’t feeling your best or a day you just want to cozy up with a warm bowl of soup.

What kind of noodles should you use?

Let’s talk noodles for a minute. I finalllllllly found a vegan “egg” noodle you would traditionally see in a chicken noodle soup recipe. If you are from the USA Walmarts brand has the vegan “egg” noodles. I have yet to actually try it in this soup, but I think it will be a great addition. With that being said you can use whatever noodle you would like. Just make sure that the noodle is not one that will fall apart easily after being left in warm broth for an extended amount of time. No one wants their noodles to disappear in their soup, or maybe you do- I’m not judging.

I like to use this Better Than Bouillon No chicken broth as my broth for this soup and many other dishes. But you could totally use a vegetable broth or whatever your favorite no chicken broth is.

Is this kid friendly?

Is this vegan not chicken noodle soup kid friendly? Welllll yes and no. My 8-year-old would eat this every day and my super picky 5-year-old will hardly look at it. So, depending on your kid, I am going to lean yes if your kid is not weird about looks and textures like mine.

I feel like everyone’s favorite part about soup night is the rolls. I have a recipe for quick rolls that are tasty and they pair perfectly with this soup. The recipe is here if you want to check it out.

Which do you prefer with your soup- rolls, crackers, or something else? Let me know in the comments!
