I have to say that this is an amazing, tasty and wholesome recipe. If you are in an area where you can get to a farmers market, then do it. Potatoes have a great shelf life, so if you have some from the last trip you made in the early Fall, then use them. I think this is a great recipe that people will love because of that fact that it is a VEGAN recipe. You can, however, add your own chicken into the broth to make it an actual chicken soup. Osem Consomme is labeled as kosher and pareve. This means that it has NO meat and NO dairy products in it.

How To Make vegetable soup in chickenless chicken broth

  • 1
    Before you begin: I don’t recall how long it actually took to make. This all depends on how small you cut your vegetables and how long you are cooking your noodles or pasta for. It is important to follow the cooking instructions for the consomme as that should be added about three minutes towards the end. There really isn’t a need for salt, but if you must, I’d recommend sea salt.
  • 2
    Put the water, potatoes, and veggies into a large pot.
  • 3
    Bring this to a boil. You will want the potatoes to be soft.
  • 4
    Add pasta. Cook pasta until desired tenderness is reached.
  • 5
    While pasta is still boiling, add the soup mix. Bring to boil while stirring. Reduce heat to a simmer for 3 minutes.
