Notes

Pro tip: Here are some flavour suggestions to change this classic soup up:
  • Italian flavour twist: add seasonings such as oregano, basil, and thyme or Italian blend seasoning
  • Thai flavour twist: add some coconut milkĀ  (1/2 cup), lime juice (1-2 Tbsp.), lemongrass, and top with fresh cilantro
  • Tex mex flavour twist: replace the carrots with cube green or red bell peppers, add a small can of diced green chilies, and top with shredded cheese when serving. You can also serve with hot sauce.
To make this gluten free, add rice or gluten free noodles in place of the egg noodles.
