Feel Me Better Veggie Noodle Soup

Today we have a sick house.  The kids were up all night and the parents are feeling queasy today.  For lunch I wanted to make something light on the stomach but, also hearty.  So I decided to try to come up with a recipe for a veggie version of chicken noodle soup.  And it's so good, you will seriously not miss the chicken.  The name.....just something the kiddos have said and it makes me smile.

Feel Me Better Veggie Noodle Soup 

1 large diced onion
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
10 cups water
2 vegan chicken flavored bouillon cubes (I used Celifibr brand)
5 celery stalks sliced
3 large carrots sliced
1 med zucchini quartered then sliced
6 garlic cloves
1 bayleaf
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tablespoon tamari
1-2 tablespoon dried parsley (I'm sure fresh would be great)
5 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 cups of dried noodles of choice

In a large soup pot saute the onion in the olive oil until translucent.  Add all the remainder of the ingredients EXCEPT noodles, bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.  Add noodles and cook according to package time - mine called for 9 minutes.  That's it, you're done - Enjoy!  Don't forget to add ice cubes to the kiddos bowls to cool it down quickly.
