Comforting Noodle Soup

Ive always had this idea that when sick or just feeling the Winter blues you eat chicken noodle soup……… however I haven’t eaten meat since I was 10, so I’ve never even eaten chicken noodle soup. but this autumn season I wanted to create the ultimate autumn experience, creating all the dished and experiencing all the things I associate with this perfect cosy season. As someone who has never experiences chicken noodle soup however I felt it would be a bit strange trying to recreate a plant based version; so I decided to wing it and make a noodle soup purely based on everything flavours that I find comforting …..

…. and it turned out pretty damn awesome.
