I turn to soups full of vegetables all the time for my lunch. Not only are they healthy, delicious and versatile (spice-wise), they use up whatever you have in the fridge.
This plant-based vegan spicy noodle soup is an incredibly simple and quick lunch. And it has enough flavor so despite its simple nature, it's not boring either. A ton of spice from the jalapenos and the chili garlic sauce pack a punch.
As noted earlier, you may be able to pull this one off with whatever you have in the fridge, too. The vegetables you add can obviously be anything you have on hand and the rest are staples you may already have in the pantry. While it was what I had on hand already, it turned out this combination worked well for this soup and warranted sharing.
