Everyone knows soup is one of the best things to eat and what you want when you’re sick. The classic “Chicken Noodle Soup” is known as the “get well” soup. So I decided to create my own plant-based, oriental-inspired version of it. I love oriental soups, but I can’t always have them since soy and me do not get along very well. It’s a love/hate relationship, with more on the hate side. So I’m trying to find ways to make less-soy or soy-free dishes. And this is completely soy-free and oriental! WOO!
Since garbanzo beans/chickpeas taste like boiled chicken to me anyway… I didn’t worry about making this a split recipe. If you want it to be chicken instead of beans, you can always chop up a raw chicken breast and add it to simmer with the broth and veggies to cook.
