I like to get Imagine Foods Organic No-Chicken broth. You can use vegetable broth, but it won’t have quite the same chicken soup resemblance.

Egg noodles contain eggs, so they’re not vegan. For a vegan option, try chickpea noodles. The Banza Gemelli noodles are perfect in this recipe!

You may substitute olive oil for the butter, if you prefer.
