Vegan Soup Recipes: Soba Noodle and Seitan Veggie Soup


As appealing as soup is in the winter months, I’m often reluctant to make it. The reasons for this are twofold: it’s never satiating enough on its own, causing me to fill up on lots of carb-heavy foods, and it’s difficult to store and transport leftovers. I’m not sure I solved the latter issue with this soup, but I most certainly succeeded in making this a filling, flavorful meal that doesn’t demand a lot of time or effort. With both soba noodles and seitan, this Vegan Soba Noodle and Seitan Veggie Soup serves as a hearty meal on its own–or serve it up with some crusty bread (hey, it’s winter!). Cozy up and enjoy with some candles and soft music 🙂

Vegan Soup Recipes: Soba Noodle and Seitan Veggie Soup


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
  • 4 ounces soba noodles
  • 6 ounces plain seitan, sliced into strips
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 small rutabaga, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 3 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups dandelion greens, chopped


1. Begin by boiling soba noodles in a medium saucepan according to package directions. Once cooked through, drain and place back in saucepan.
2. While noodles are cooking, saute olive oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Once garlic becomes fragrant, add ginger and continue to saute for another 3 minutes. Add carrot and rutabaga and saute for 5-7 minutes, until vegetables are becoming soft and browning slightly.
3. Add seitan and saute for another 3 minutes, until it also begins to brown.
4. Add vegetable and seitan mixture to saucepan with soba noodles, along with 3 cups water or vegetable broth. Bring to a simmer and allow the broth and vegetables to heat through. Finally, gently stir in dandelion greens and take soup off heat.
5. Serve and enjoy!
