Tofu Noodle soup is basically a Vietnamese vegan pho. This Asian pho is a palate cleanser. You can have it when you just need a one pot meal with less cooking. All you need is some cooked tofu along with whatever raw veggies you might have left over. It is full of nutrients and hence builds immunity. You can use any vegetables in the soup like carrot, broccoli, corn, bok choy, beans, chopped green onions, garlic shoots, peas and even add stir-fried tofu. This is a gluten-free and vegan recipe. Hence, a perfect for a cold winter night or a rainy evening supper.
Simple and flavorsome. Enjoy your noodles but make it healthier. It is low on spices, although some people do add whole spices(garam masala) to this pot. Non-vegetarians may add their choice of meat if that goes for you. Personally, I do not like to consume meat and eggs. So I love the vegan version.
