Vegan, German Flaedle Soup (Pancake Soup)

A pancake soup is known as a meal for poor people, cause the ingredients you need are very cheap: flour, milk, and vegetable broth. I know the dish from my family and always liked the idea of adding pancakes to a soup. Who came up with this genius idea?

We prepare the soup without any animal products. The only ingredient we had to substitute are eggs. They make sure that the pancakes come out soft and elastic. We replaced them with some chickpea flour, which works very good. The only difference is that you can't roll the pancakes to cut them into strips. This is how you would traditionally proceed. But that's no problem, cause the pancakes can also be cut into strips without rolling them up. Make sure that you serve a strong vegetable broth, so the soup doesn't come out watery. And that's it! Quick and simple.
