This vegetable noodle soup is as simple, direct, and delicious as it gets. Served extra hot and plump with pasta noodles, it’s the kind of soup that comforts minds and bolsters spirits. If you’re vegetarian or vegan looking for an alternative to chicken noodle soup, this should be in your wheelhouse.
Variations: There are a host of things you can use in place of the pasta noodles here. For example, you can serve the broth over leftover rice, cooked farro, or pearl barley. You can also stir any of the following into individual bowls of soup to take things in slightly different directions – toasted sesame oil, lemon olive oil, sriracha sauce, miso, or curry paste.
