Slow Cooker Chickpea Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup. Another one of those classics that’s immediately banned when you become a vegetarian.

But who says you can’t still enjoy something like it? Let’s face it, the chicken isn’t even the best part. I was always a fan of the noodles myself. In fact, my favorite soup used to be the old fashioned canned kind with DOUBLE noodles.ChickpeaNoodleSoupChickpeaNoodleSoup

This soup is easy (enter: slow cooker), comforting just like the classic, and loaded with veggies (and noodles!). Feel free to throw in whatever veggies you like. My husband and I both hate celery so I added some peas instead.
