If you're looking for a quick, healthy, plant-powered meal, these Zoodles in a Jar definitely fit the bill! I've brought this to my foster care training classes and everyone around me was drooling over my soup— it smells so good and is super comforting in the belly.
Packed with nutrient-rich veggies + plant-based protein, this nourishing zoodle soup was designed as a healthy alternative to Instant Noodles (no crazy amount of sodium + not-so-good for you ingredients here!). I love to make this whenever my body's craving a little comfort food.
Recipe is from Fresh Start (spring)
