Mom's Crazy Cooking Challenge - Chicken(less) Noodle Soup

This month Tina, from Mom's Crazy Cooking, announced that her cooking challenge would be chicken noodle soup.

My first thought was "Darn I can't participate."

However I e-mailed Tina to see if substitutes for chicken could be made...such as tofu.

She was receptive to the idea, so today I bring you chickenless noodle soup care of The Type A Housewife.

Her directions were easy to follow and came out very tasty.

I started things off by sauteeing my mirepoix (carrots, onions, and celery).

The process from start to finish probably took 30 minutes, which is not bad to whip up a quick and healthy meal for your family.

The finished product:

Then being enjoyed by Caroline who really only wanted it for the cool little noodles.

Be sure to head over to Mom's and see what other chicken noodle soups my fellow bloggers are featuring.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Come back tomorrow as I will have a giveaway...YEAH!  Just because Christmas has passed doesn't mean that I can't still give you a gift right?



  1. Thank you for making my soup for the challenge! It's always exciting to hear how my recipes turn out for other people & I'm glad you and your family enjoyed it. :)

  2. All the soups look good, but the best thing I see is my little precious girl! *smiles*

  3. I love homemade soups. Thay all look delicious.

  4. My daughter only eats the noodles, too. Oh well :))

  5. A perfect soup for those who don't want real meat in their meals, and well worth trying by anyone else who would like to discover the adaptiveness of tofu. Thanks for sharing and I hope you'll check out my Entry #52 in the Challenge.

  6. I love those cute noodles too. I serve them to my 22 year old son, who thinks they are cool too. I can't remember what they are called, but I think it starts with a D?! I will check it out at the grocery. Thanks for a great recipe!

  7. Great job be creative with the chicken (less) soup! My soup is #1 - Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup - come check it out and it was my first time making Homemade Chicken Soup!

  8. Awww your little Caroline loves this dish! My daughter loves Dora and she has similar clothes too. =) I'd enjoy either chicken or tofu. Looks yummy!
