Place a large stockpot over medium heat and add olive oil. Add chopped onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. Cook for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are softened.
Add vegetable broth, thyme, bay leaf, tamari, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then add noodles. Cook for 7-10 minutes (or according to package directions). The last 2-3 minutes, add the Savory Baked Tofu to heat it through.
Pull out bay leaf. Serve with lemon wedges and chopped parsley, if desired.
