Noodle-Free Chicken Soup

Jump to recipe

It’s fall…technically anyway. If you live in Texas, it’s more like extended summer right now, what with the 95 degree temperatures!

Normally, I don’t pull out my chicken soup recipe until at least mid-November, but we had a “crisp” 80 degree day, so I decided to make an exception.

It's that time of year again! Are you a chicken noodle soup fan? You should really try this noodle-free version!

The only problem? Last time I made chicken soup, it involved noodles and parmesan. I’ll be honest-chicken soup is something my Grams did very well. And she passed her recipe (homemade egg noodles and all) to my mom, who passed it to me. But egg noodles definitely were a no-go…and I wasn’t sure if zoodles (or even sweet potato noodles) would hold up.

I omitted them just to be safe, and you know what? I don’t miss them. Not.At.All. Even Ish said that this was the best soup he’s ever had.

World’s Best Chicken Noodle Soup

Y’all. This recipe literally takes 20 minutes from start to finish (hands-on time). And if you use a veggie chopper and a mandoline, you can cut that time in half.

I also used Rosemary Essential Oil, which is classified as a GRAS oil because I was completely out of dried Rosemary. And you know what? It was really, really good!

A few of my fellow paleo peeps also suggested that if you wanted to try zoodles in your soup, you could add them about 5 minues before you want to eat.
