Cooking Pasta For Soups

For most of my noodle soup recipes, I cook the pasta separately from the soup broth. If you add dried pasta directly to a hot soup, you run the risk of having the dried pasta soak up all the broth and overcook the noodles (turning it soup into a mushy mess).

I’ve found that cooking the pasta separately, then serving the broth over the noodles in a bowl works best. I allow the soup to cool, then add the cooked pasta after. That way you’ll have perfectly cooked pasta that holds it shape and a delicious brothy soup.

One of the BEST Pantry Staple Soup Recipes

This tofu noodle soup recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal!  It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards – most of which you probably have on hand. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious meals using a few staples you can rotate.

How Do I Make This Creamy Tofu Noodle Soup Recipe?

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside for later.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 5 or 6 minutes until the veggies become translucent.
  3. To the pot, add the carrots and garlic and saute for 3 minutes more. Add the tofu, vegetable stock, thyme, and garlic salt.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 25 minutes until veggies are fully cooked.
  4. Add the coconut milk and fresh parsley to the soup and stir. Taste, and add more seasoning as needed.
  5. To serve, add noodles to a bowl and ladle the hot soup over.  Wait until broth has fully cooked before adding pasta into the soup (to avoid overcooking).

Make Tofu Soup Vegan for a Plant-Based Version

This vegan tofu soup is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family. 

I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and tasty recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.
