To make this like a vegan “chicken noodle soup” I used freezed tofu for chicken substitute. Freezing firm tofu makes the texture look like chicken chunks. Place tofu in the freezer for at least 3 hours. I always have some in my freezer, you can’t just put the package of tofu right into the freezer when coming from a store. When you want to use it, just unwrap the tofu and let it defrost. Squeeze out excess water and use your hands to crumble it to “chicken bites”.
