Must-try plant based noodle soup for cold and flu season (easy recipe!)

With the holidays comes family, fun and runny noses. Having a young kid in school means colds almost once a month, especially during these colder seasons and it can get physically draining (and mentally too let’s be real.) In these times I really rely on simple, nutritious recipes that can make enough for some good ole’ leftovers, hence my go-to noodle soup. Obviously you can use whatever protein you like for your soups this one just happens to be plant-based and delicious. I hope you give this easy recipe a try and get your kids to help in one way or another to get them involved in the cooking process. Make a big batch and you can keep it in the fridge for 4-5 days for an easy meal when sick or just strapped for time during the Christmas madness. Whatever you celebrate I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season and I’ll be seeing you all in the New Year! until next time, xo Chrissy
