Tofu Chicken Noodle Soup

There is nothing better on a cold day than to cozy up with an nice bowl of soup. Prior to going Vegan, chicken noodle soup was a favorite of mine. I basically grew up on it since my grandmother made it every time I would go to her house. 


When it hit me that tofu could potentially be a great chicken substitute, I knew that I needed to do this recipe. This is the only soup that I will eat chunky and is so warm and cozy. 

I am not huge on soups, but this is definitely the exception. It brings back so many childhood memories and is so hearty from all the vegetables, noodles and tofu. 


I hope you enjoy this recipe and remember if you make it to tag me on Instagram @plantbasedjane so I can see!
