Under-the-Weather No-Chicken Noodle Soup

What you need: 

1 cup mini spiral shaped pasta (they fit so well into a spoon)
1 yellow onion, chopped small
olive oil
1 cup water
4 to 8 ounces vegan chick'n strips, chopped very small
2 medium celery stalks and leaves, chopped small
1 long carrot, cut in half then chopped (better than plain carrot circles)
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
32 ounces vegetable broth (e.g., "Imagine" brand No-chicken broth)

What you do: 

1. Boil water in a medium pot. Throw in pasta and cook for about 7 minutes or until al dente. Drain and put aside.
2. While pasta is cooking, saute onion in olive oil until it is sweating.
3. Stir in water, celery, carrot, parsley, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer on high for about 5 minutes, adding more liquid as needed. The vegetables should be softening at this point.
4. Pour in the box of broth and stir well. Allow soup to simmer on medium for about 10 minutes to blend flavors. Only add noodles at the end of this so they don't get over cooked.
This is very soothing if you have a cold or flu. Serve with a side of TLC <3
Source of recipe: I made it up based on what I remember from real chicken noodle soup.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

We were making this and the only thing we didn't know when to add into the soup was the chick'n strips.  So we are reading through the directions trying to find the chick'n strips...  Haha.  When do we add the chick'n strips!

Woops, sorry about that lack of detail. I put in the chick'n with the veggies so they can get toasty and soak up all those concentrates flavors before the broth is added.

Thanks for the recipe! This soup tasted just as it's supposed to! I like it a little thicker, so I added some cornstarch and extra nutritional yeast at the end.
