I gather all the usual suspects for chicken noodles soup: garlic, frozen stew vegetables (makes cooking soup really fast and easy when you've been up all night with a sick child!) veggie bouillon, vegetable soup stock, sea salt, egg noodles, and spices. Instead of the chicken, I add Morning Stars Vegetarian "chicken strips." Even my meat eating husband loved this soup!
Boil the noodles first and drain the water.
Keep the noodles in the colander to be added at the end when the soup is all ready so they don't over cook and get mushy.
Throw all the ingredients into the pot and boil 'er up!
