Vegan "Chicken" Soup

vegan chicken soup 1

To make the best, fastest soup, start with a rich and flavorful veggie broth. You can make your own by simmering a mix of onions, carrots, celery, and potatoes in water that just covers the veggies for about 1 hour, then strain and use as needed. 

Serve with Vegan Matzo Balls if desired.
