Clear Noodle Soup with Vegetables

This soothing clear noodle soup with vegetables is your go-to recipe for those days when you’re feeling under the weather. Whether you’re battling a sore throat or fighting off a cold, this soup is sure to bring comfort and relief.

Growing up, clear veggie soups were a staple in my household, especially during the chilly months. Passed down from my mom and grandma, these soups have always been a trusted remedy for colds and flu. Packed with wholesome vegetables and tons of fresh parsley, they can be a nourishing way to support your immune system and aid in recovery.

Clear Noodle Soup with Vegetables

Carrots take center stage in this clear soup, adding both flavor and nutrition. I love to keep them whole for a satisfying bite. And let’s not forget about the parsley – a key ingredient that adds a burst of freshness and essential vitamin C. Trust me, you’ll want to load up on it!

Variations for clear noodle soup – adding proteins

Adding protein-rich ingredients like tofu or chicken can significantly enhance the nutritional profile of the clear veggie noodle soup while providing added sustenance. Here are some ways to incorporate these ingredients:

  1. Tofu: Dice firm tofu into small cubes and add them to the soup during the cooking process. Tofu absorbs the flavors of the broth and adds a hearty texture to the soup. Alternatively, you can pan-fry or bake the tofu separately and add it to the soup as a crispy topping just before serving.
  2. Chicken: Cook chicken breast or even chicken bones left with some meat on them in a pot with water and salt. Add the skins as well for some extra healthy fats. Once fully cooked, remove from water and turn off heat. Let it cool down a bit then remove all meat from the bones. Add the meat back to the soup. Add this to the clear noodle soup recipe below.
  3. Protein alternatives: Aside from tofu and chicken, you can also consider adding other protein-rich ingredients such as cooked beans (e.g., chickpeas, kidney beans), lentils, quinoa, or edamame. These plant-based options offer a boost of protein and can complement the vegetables and noodles in the soup.
  4. Bone broth: For an additional boost of flavor and nutrients, consider using bone broth as the base for your clear veggie noodle soup. Bone broth is rich in collagen, minerals, and amino acids, which can contribute to joint health, gut health, and overall well-being. Simply substitute vegetable or chicken broth with bone broth in the recipe to add depth and richness to the soup. You can make your own bone broth using leftover bones from roasted chicken or beef, or purchase it pre-made from the store for convenience. Bone broth not only enhances the nutritional value of the soup but also adds a comforting and savory element to every spoonful.

By incorporating protein-rich ingredients like tofu or chicken into the clear noodle soup, you can create a more satisfying and nourishing meal that will keep you feeling full and energized. Feel free to experiment with different protein sources to suit your dietary preferences and taste preferences.
