If you’re anything like me, you remember those little cans of chicken noodle soup your mom used to pop open and put in the microwave for you. There were little noodle stars in it and it made me so happy. The only thing about that soup that really made me super happy is that it reminded me of home and made feel safe. With this healthy chicken noodle soup recipe, we have taken the feeling and great taste of mom’s soup in a can and made it from scratch to help fuel our plant-based family to create an easy vegan meal for everyone. As a proud vegan dad myself, I love to give options for folks, wherever they are on their plant-baed journey. If you happen to love chicken, then use the Gardein chick”un” strips, but if you prefer to skip the meat alternatives, the chickpeas will make your taste buds soar!
