Vegetable noodle soup

I went looking for a simple but tasty vegetable noodle soup, but every recipe had something slightly different or that just didn’t seem to fit. In the end I took ingredients from multiple recipes and made my own version of it to satisfy my cravings. Turned out pretty good, don’t you think? Check out the recipe below!
