All the comfort and familiarity of a good chicken soup minus the chicken! This Vegan Chicken Soup is perfect for those of you looking for a meat free option of the classic that just makes you feel good when it’s cold and you’re feeling a bit below par.
Packed with veggies and herbs, it’s tasty without any thickeners, sugars or sweeteners. It’s how I like to eat and I make this one often. Of course, If you want meat, feel free to sub the tofu with some roast chicken.
What protein replaces the chicken?
I like to use an extra firm tofu for this Vegan Chicken Soup Recipe and season it simply with salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil then bake in the oven so it dries out a bit (better than frying in my opinion) but you can add some spices or a mix like fajita, peri peri, cajun or taco if you fancy a bit of heat or more flavour.
I prefer tofu over the chickenless pieces you can buy in the supermarkets as those are processed and full of dextrose, flours and seiten etc, which I try to avoid. I prefer as natural as possible. Of course, you can use chickenless pieces if you prefer.
I hope this becomes a staple in your house too.
