  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • Taste test and add salt and pepper as needed.

  1. Vegan chicken spice - or vegan poultry seasoning. Many brands of chicken spice or poultry seasoning are already vegan by ingredient, so just check the label.
  2. Vegan chicken stock - or vegan chicken broth such as Better than Bouillon ‘no-chicken’ broth is perfect to use here. Alternatively you can use vegetable stock or vegetable broth.
  3. Vegan chicken - you can use any vegan chicken either chopped up small or shredded. We used vegan chicken strips that we chopped up small. 
  4. Noodles - you can use any noodles like rice noodles or pasta noodles. We used Chinese stir fry noodles.
  5. Coconut cream - we used canned, unsweetened coconut cream. You can also use canned, unsweetened coconut milk. Or you can omit it entirely.
  6. Storing and freezing: Keep leftovers stored in a covered container in the fridge and enjoy within 3-4 days. It can be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop. If you know you want to freeze this soup then it's best not to add the noodles. The broth can be frozen for 3-4 months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge, reheat on the stove and add the noodles.
