Chickpea Noodle Soup

You hear it all the time... Chicken Noodle Soup is the cure for all that ails you.  What's a vegetarian supposed to do? Enter Chickpea Noodle Soup

For years I relied on Amy's Kitchen No Chicken Noodle soup. It's pretty high in sodium and it just doesn't taste like mom would have made.

My sister sent me her recipe of chicken noodle soup, and I set upon trying to veganize it.

Chickpea Noodle Soup

This recipe has got it all... a thick creamy broth, veggies, and some chickpeas for protein.  Thankfully, I haven't had to put it to the test with any illness.  A bowl this soup was very comforting on a cold stormy night.

2 cartons low sodium no-chicken broth
3 carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced

  1. Great idea to use chick peas in a no chicken soup. Thanks for linking up for meatless Monday today

  2. I love adding chickpeas to anything! I really like your use of ramen in this as well!

  3. This sounds yummy! I love broth and veggies so this recipe is calling my name!

  4. Health comfort food if only my family loved chickpeas as much as I do.

  5. they are becoming my favorite.

  6. It is so good! and those "homemade" style noodles, yum ... like gramma used to make :-)

  7. I think it would be good with more veggies in place of the chickpeas!

  8. I'm with Sarah -- I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but my husband wouldn't touch it. :( I may try it and just leave out the flour, though. The noodles are enough flour for me!

  9. Soup is always good on a cold night! I love that you made it with chickpeas! It would be fun to do a Mediterranean version, wouldn't it?

  10. I think equally good without the extra flour, just more brothy.

  11. Oh... now you have my gears cranking!
