This one pot Chickpea Noodle Soup is a healthy vegan and gluten-free alternative to the infamous comfort meal


After feeling under the weather the past couple of days, I decided to make the ultimate comfort dish – Chickpea Noodle Soup.

I’m sure many can relate to eating chicken noodle soup whenever they were sick. Well, this Chickpea Noodle Soup has the same comforting affect, but without the chicken! Instead, we are using chickpeas – a great source of fiber and protein, and cholesterol-free.

With minimal ingredients that you likely already have on hand, this Chickpea Noodle Soup comes together in under 30 minutes. Wholesome, plant-based and gluten-free, this soup is sure to satisfy people of every diet.


Olive Oil – a kitchen staple. This organic one is great.

Onion – I prefer yellow onion in this, but you can also use white if that’s what you have on hand.

Garlic – I use fresh garlic, but you can substitute 1 tsp garlic powder

Carrots – what’s chickpea noodle soup without it?

Celery – same thing as carrots.

Chickpeas – also known as garbanzo beans, they replace the chicken in the traditional soup.

• Vegetable Broth – any store-bought vegetable broth will work fine. I also like to use this vegan broth powder which you just add to the pot along with water.

NoNo Pasta – this organic, vegan, gluten-free, superfood pasta is the star of the show. It is available to purchase on Amazon with my code for money off: 10BOOBOOS. If you are not able to get NoNo Pasta, you can substitute for any other pasta (GF or not). This recipe uses 8 oz of dry pasta.

• Seasonings – salt and black pepper (of course), dried oregano, dried parsley and turmeric for a pop of color and added nutrients. Feel free to adjust the amounts as needed/sub out for other seasonings of preference.

• Nutritional Yeast – adds a bit of color and umami flavor to the soup. This one on Amazon is a great deal.

• Lemon – adds a bit of freshness.

To make this Chickpea Noodle Soup, simply sauté onions, carrots, celery and garlic for 5-7 minutes. Next, add the seasonings and stir. Then, add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the pasta and chickpeas. Cook for another 10 minutes. Top with nutritional yeast and lemon and serve!
