"Tastes just like chicken noodle soup but with tofu. I add raisins to this soup, just like grandma used to."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
vegetarian chicken-flavored broth
1 (14 ounce) container
extra-firm tofu, drained and cubed
This is my recipe. After making this several times since writing the recipe, I've found that: I like chicken flavored vegetable broth by Orrington Farms the best; it's ok to use minced garlic from a jar; add 1/2 cup more celery; add herbs/spices before boiling; decrease water to 10 cups; increase noodles to 3 cups (I like the dumpling style noodles); and decrease cooking time to 20-30 minutes. The cornstarch/water mixture is optional. Oh, you may need to add salt to taste depending on the sodium content of your broth. And this is probably more like 6-8 servings. :)
This is a nice simple soup that i enjoyed and will make again. I have a warning for all people who read these reviews though. Keep the broth at 12 cups if you use egg noodles. I reduced the broth to 8 cups and those noodles soaked it right up. after two bowls there wasn't any broth left! Thanks for a good recipe. I will make it with my own vegetable stock next time to reduce the sodium and keep it at 12 cups.
it was really good as a base soup, although i admit that i had to make a few adjustments. i added lots of green vegetables and only kept the water/stock to 6 cups, not 12. in making it i really feel that 12 cups would make it way too thin.
This soup is great! I put in 10 cups of water based on other suggestions here, but 12 cups would have been just right (the egg noodles soak up a lot of the liquid). I stopped eating meat last year and now I won't even miss chicken noodle soup!
This soup is fantastic. I have made it a couple of times now and absolutely love it. The first time I made it I followed the ingredients exactly. The scond time I made it , I altered it slightly. I added a little more cornstarch to thicken it up a bit and used two cloves of garlic. and a little extra carrots and raisins. I will be making this on a regular basis .
This is a good soup recipe. Nothing too fancy, but very tasty. I made it once with the raisins, and once without. It is good both ways, but I think I prefer it without. The raisins give a very interesting sweet taste, and is definitely worth a try.
Love this soup! I always make extras for leftovers and plenty to freeze for later.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I made it last night for a Monday night dinner and not only is it easy enough for a weeknight, but my husband loved it. I used the dumpling noodles, which I love anyway, and used vegetable broth because I couldn't find the kind called for in the recipe. I added more salt because my broth didn't have a whole lot. As for the other seasonings, I really only used the poultry seasoning and black pepper (and a bit of thyme.) I also added peas because I thought they looked pretty. And one more change - I sauteed the tofu with the veggies for just a bit to give it some flavor. My husband usually HATES celery, so I left it big enough for him to pick out but he wound up liking it. I didn't have to use the cornstarch mixture, but I could see how it would be a nice thickening agent if your soup was thin. I will most certainly be making this recipe again and again this fall and winter, especially since I keep most of the ingredients on hand. A soup that's this easy is always nice to have in the arsenal. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!
