Veggie Noodle Soup

Feeling a little under the weather? Need a simple, healthy and delicious pick-me-up? This basic homemade vegan soup may not look like much but is has that fantastic noodle soup quality; it makes you feel good inside. Full of vitamins, minerals and protein this is a simple, quick and easy soup; great for throwing together after work.

If serving to little ones chop the veggies nice a small and use an alphabet or animal soup noodle; here I used small spirali pasta. I used Promite as the vegetable extract but you could use Vegemite, Marmite or any vegetarian vegetable extract spread and for the beans I used a tin of three bean mix, but use whatever cooked or tinned beans you like.

Serve as is with crusty bread or topped with your favourite cheese. Enjoy!

Preparation time: 20mins
Serves 4

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 1 red chilli, diced (optional)
  • 3 large carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • small bunch of fresh thyme, diced
  • 200g (7 oz) beans (butter, kidney or chickpeas)
  • 1 tbs vegetable extract (such as promite or marmite)
  • 1 L (1 quart) vegetable stock
  • 500ml (1 pint) water
  • 150g (5oz) pasta

Heat the oil in a large saucepan; add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat until soft.

Add the diced chilli, carrot, celery and thyme; toss well and cook for a further 1-2 minutes; add the beans and toss well.

Add the vegetable extract, stock and water. Bring to a gently boil.

Add the pasta and continue to simmer over a medium heat for 10-15minutes until the pasta is al dente (tender).

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve as is or topped with your favourite cheese and a side of warm crusty bread.

I made this soup on Sunday (I cook in bulk on the weekend) and enjoyed it for lunch at work on a rainy, cold Monday. It was warm, comforting, filling and DELICIOUS! Thanks you!

I made this soup yesterday (with a few little changes: bell peppers instead of celery, no thyme) and it really saved my evening after coming home chilled to the bone (Where is indian summer? Did I miss something and it’s November already?). Anyway, I love this soup!

Hi Sofia.. thanks so much for the feedback, nothing like a good soup to warm you. We made it again just the other day too, for two friends who had a very long journey and where tired, cold and hungry… it really hit the spot. Cheers!!

Yum! I made this soup tonight (although I had to substitute dill for the thyme – a very different flavor no doubt, but still delicious and wonderfully filling). It’s going to be perfect to bring to work all week. Thank you!!

Hi Allison, my pleasure and thanks so much for the great feedback! The dill would be a little different to the thyme but still a wonderful herby flavour to the soup… and it does make a good packed lunch doesn’t it :)

I just finished a bowl of this for lunch at work and it was delish!

So quick and easy to make and very yummy :)

I made this soup tonight to soothe my sore throat/cough, and it turned out amazing! It is so delicious! Definitely better than any veggie noodle soup I’ve bought in the store. I didn’t have any vegetable extract so I just tossed in some salt. Very yummy and exactly what I needed to help battle this cold. :) Thank you!
