Ingredients for vegan chickpea noodle soup


This soup is packed with herbs. If you prefer a simple flavor, you can use just one or two herbs. Also, if you are cooking the pasta in advance, toss it with olive oil to minimize sticking. If you are cooking the pasta as you make the soup, you can mix it in once it's ready.

Step 1

In a large pot over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onions, carrots and celery. Sauté for 5 to 7 minutes or until the onions are tender and translucent.
