Garbanzo Noodle Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Enjolinfam

Terrific vegetarian chicken noodle soup substitute! Growing up I always loved chicken noodle soup and missed it since becoming a vegetarian. I adapted this recipe from a friend that got it from another friend and so on. My kids love it, especially if I top it with their favorite goldfish crackers.

I like that this recipe is sooo versatile, able to go with typical everyday household ingred. almost any veggie can be added to this, even kielabasa if wanting the addition of a meat. We def. will continue to play around with this recipe. Thanks a lot for posting
