Melissa Studdard: Melissa’s Vegetarian Chicken Noodle Soup

Although my daughter and I are vegetarians, she loves comfort food, especially when she’s sick. I developed this recipe when she had a cold, and now she requests it regularly, whether she’s sick or not. Like a poem, it’s versatile—as long as you throw in an aesthetically pleasing balance of the ingredients, you have the soup. I keep frozen peas, Quorn chicken, and vegetable broth on hand, and I grow the parsley and rosemary.
