Unless you have been living under a rock this year, you have probably seen that marry me chicken has been taking the internet my storm. I debated whether or not to jump on that train and maybe make marry me tofu. In the end, I decided as I always do, to be a bit more unique than that. So I made you guys this seriously incredible vegan marry me “chicken” noodle soup! It seems pretty reasonable, considering how delicious this soup is, that you may in fact, now want to marry me!
What You Need To Make This Vegan “Chicken” Noodle Soup:
- Soy Curls: I always buy Butler’s soy curls in bulk because I use them so much!
- Vegan No-Chicken Bouillon Cubes: To give the soy curls that “chicken” flavor.
- Garlic and Sun-dried Tomatoes: These start the soup out.
- Italian Seasoning: Usually a mixture of basil, oregano and parsley.
- Vegan Cream and Non-dairy Milk: I used Country Crock Plant Cream and oat milk.
- Broth: Either No-chicken broth or just vegetable broth.
- Noodles: I used egg-free ribbon noodles. You can find them at Walmart.
- Vegan Parmesan, Fresh Basil and Red Pepper: I used Follow Your Heart Parmesan.
This one pot meal is so simple, but really killer. If you are looking to impress, even a non-vegan, this is the recipe for you! Soak and then sauté the soy curls. Remove them, simmer the noodles right in the soup liquid and then return the soy curls to the pot with the fresh basil and vegan Parm. It couldn’t get any easier than this! It is officially soup season baby, and this is one of the best you’ll ever have.
