Asian Vegetable Noodle Soup is the perfect cold weather day recipe. It is ready in under 30 minutes and full of flavor. Toss in any of your favorite vegetables and use your favorite vegetable noodles for a comforting bowl of soup that is low in fat and calories without sacrificing taste.
Almost every time I talk to a friend about vegetable noodles, they complain about having to actually make the noodles. It requires a special tool or just takes extra time that they just don’t have. That is totally where Green Giant® Veggie Spirals come in. They are vegetables like zucchini, beets, carrots and butternut squash that are already turned into noodle. But, they skipped the sauce and seasonings so you can use them in any dish you want!
All of the Green Giant Veggie Sprials are gluten-free and have 90% fewer calories than pasta making them perfect swap in for tons of recipes. I used the zucchini veggie spirals in place of traditional noodles in my Asian vegetable noodle soup. Combined with some of my favorite other vegatables, it makes the perfect bowl of soup for this second cold weather trend we are currently experiencing.
I also add chicken to my soup occasionally for a little bit of extra protein. That is totally optional of course but, if you do, you can also substitute the vegetable broth with chicken broth.
Zucchini veggie spirals naturally release water during cooking so, if using in something besides a soup, I recommend cooking them separately and then draining or patting some of the water with a paper towel before adding to your dish. For this recipe, since it is soup, the excess water isn’t an issue at all.
