Flu season is in full swing. It seems like everyone around me is dropping like flies! A few friends have missed running group for the past few weeks in a row and my cousin was hospitalized for 3 days because it got so bad.

I, for one, never get a flu shot, but I am sort of considering it since this season’s strain seems especially bad.

Whenever I am sick, no matter if it’s a little cold or a harsh flu, I crave my mom’s homemade soups. She’s been making a different to have each week for as long as I remember. Now that I don’t live at home anymore, I miss hearing those nourishing bowls of soup, especially when I am sick.

She’s made some “hall of famers” (that’s what my dad always refers to as her best recipes) over the years, but really I’ve never had a soup from my mom that I haven’t liked.

Her classic chicken noodle is probably my all time favorite though! So much in fact, that I thought I’d try to recreate it into a vegan version so that everyone can enjoy its deliciousness.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 14.5 ounce can of chickpeas
  • 10 cups no-chicken chicken broth or veggie broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning or poultry seasoning, divided in half
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1½ cups grain-free pasta (or pasta of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon chickpea or yellow miso
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Prepare the chickpeas: Drain and rinse the canned chickpeas. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a small bowl, toss together the chickpeas, 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth. Spread onto the baking tray and roast for 20-30 minutes or until golden, flipping halfway through. Cool completely and then set aside.

Turn your Instant Pot to the sauté setting.

Add a few tablespoons of broth, the onion, kale, carrots and celery and saute for 3 minutes until the onion softens and becomes translucent.

Season with salt and pepper, add the thyme, miso, and remaining seasoning, and stir. Pour in the rest of the broth. Add the chickpeas.

Close the lid. Set the Instant Pot to the Soup setting and set the timer to 7 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete, wait until the natural release cycle is complete, should take about 10 minutes. Follow the manufacturer’s guide for quick release, if in a rush. Carefully unlock and remove the lid from the instant pot.

Add the noodles to the soup and set the Instant Pot to the saute setting again. Cook for another 8 minutes uncovered, or until the noodles are cooked.

Turn off the Instant Pot, by pressing the cancel button. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

    Very Yum!! I pan fried my chickpeas to save some time and used vegan no-egg “egg” noodles. Thanks for sharing this. I think the Miso is the secret ingredient. Made this over the weekend and I’m already making another pot….on Monday. 😉

    Can I use white miso in the recipe? Can’t find yellow or chickpea miso where I live.
