This healthy Tofu Noodle Soup is pure comfort food in a bowl. Warm up with this easy meal on a cold Winter day.
It's that time of year when many people warm up with a bowl of their favorite soup, myself included. Nothing says comfort food like a bowl of 5 Ingredient Curry Peanut Pumpkin Soup or Roasted Pepper and Tomato Soup.
Today I decided to switch out my normal creamy soups for a vegetable noodle soup with tofu. It's similar to a chicken noodle soup, but with Savory Baked Tofu instead of chicken.
I started with a mirepoix, which is just a fancy way of saying onions, celery, and carrots. To that I added vegetable broth, thyme, and a bay leaf.
Then I added the noodles and cooked them in the broth. For serving, I included a few options. You could use all of them, a couple, or none at all.
My favorites are nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and chopped parsley. Red pepper flakes are good too, especially if you're feeling under the weather.

Tips For Making Tofu Noodle Soup
- Make the Savory Baked Tofu the day before to make things easy on yourself. Better yet, double the batch and use the extra for salads and sandwiches for your lunch.
- Chop or crumble the baked tofu, depending upon how you like it.
- There's no need to cook the noodles ahead of time. Cook them in the vegetable broth for less cleanup.
- Start with less thyme than I have listed and taste it to see how you like it. If you don't like the taste a bay leaf imparts, leave it out.
- Add more or less broth depending upon how you like it.
