It is cold and snowy as I sit and write this, which makes me think about soup. Specifically, the soup my mom used to make when I was younger. You probably know what I’m talking about. It’s nothing special, just tender chicken and egg noodles, with a few aromatic veggies thrown in. But it was delicious then, and it would be delicious now.

Of course, these days, there are other things to worry about — namely that I must make my own soup, but also that I don’t need more starchy carbs in my diet, and I definitely need more veggies. So this soup takes a different route with zucchini noodles and the perfect blend of spices from Ava Jane’s Kitchen.

But don’t worry, it’s not that much different. It’s still comforting on a cold winter day, which is entirely the point, right?
