This recipe is a twist on conventional chicken noodle soup. By using Asian style somen noodles and no chicken, this recipe can be made in about 30 minutes, with all the flavor of traditional chicken noodle and the added nutrients of extra vegetables. When fresh vegetables are no longer in season, defrosted frozen vegetables will work well too.
This recipe is perfect for all times of year, but works exceptionally well during cold Colorado days and when you’re feeling under the weather.
** These veggies cook al dente, for softer vegetables. Cook additional 3-5 minutes
