Cozy low sodium soups are a staple for us year-round! But they can be SO difficult to make taste good. Most people are used to overly salty canned soups, so finding a good low sodium option at the store is near impossible – that’s why we make this low sodium chicken noodle soup from scratch!

By adding in some great fresh ingredients (onion, garlic, lemon, thyme, sweet carrots) you can build layers of flavor without salt. I always make this recipe with egg noodles because I love the texture, but you can use any medium or small pasta you have on hand.

What Is the Best Low Sodium Chicken Broth & Chicken Stock?

There are a few different types of low/no sodium broth on the market. I’ll break down some options below so you can choose what fits in with your dietary needs. Always check the labels to ensure the sodium content fits in with your needs.

  • ‘Low Sodium’ or ‘Reduced Sodium’ Chicken Broth/Stock – even though the packaging says “low or reduced sodium” this broth still often contains salt. It just contains a lower amount than regular chicken broth or stock.  The sodium content per serving can range and vary based on brand, I usually stick with an organic low sodium broth.
  • ‘Unsalted’ or ‘No Salt Added’ Chicken Broth/Stock – This broth has no added salt, which keeps the sodium content low. It still can contain a low amount of sodium from the natural ingredients that the stock is made of (vegetables/chicken). I also opt for an organic version, I use this unsalted chicken broth if I don’t make my own.
  • Sodium Free Bouillon – Bouillon cubes or packets are a great 0 sodium option. You just add water to a cube or powder, and you have broth in minutes. I like these 0mg sodium packets I use in my recipes.
  • Homemade Broth/Stock – this is my go-to option for soups, as I can control the ingredients and flavor that goes into the broth. You can follow my low sodium chicken stock recipe here!  Add all the ingredients to a large pot, simmer for an hour, strain and enjoy in this soup.

How Do I Make Low Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup?

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook egg noodles according to package instructions. Drain, and set aside.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the onion and sauté for 6 or 7 minutes until translucent. Toss in the carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes longer.
  3. Add the low/no sodium vegetable stock, cooked chicken, thyme, pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the peas, lemon juice, spinach, and black pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lemon or black pepper as desired.
  5. To serve, add 1/2 cup cooked pasta to a bowl, ladle the hot soup over the pasta.
  6. To refrigerate: make sure the broth is cool before adding the cooked noodles, or else pasta will overcook. Only add noodles to the hot soup if you are eating right away.

One of The Best Low Sodium Soup Recipes

Soup can be one of the most difficult things to make low sodium (and make it still taste good)!  I make dozens of low sodium soups, and this chicken noodle is a really fantastic version – I highly recommend it. The lemon in the broth takes the flavor up to another level.

You can make soups low in sodium by swapping a no-salt-added broth for traditional stocks, and using a good variety of herbs, spices, and a bit of acidity. Browse all our low sodium soup recipes here, for lunch and dinner inspirations without tons of added salt or preservatives!

    I liked the variety of ingredients but found adding a bit of poultry seasoning gave it a bit more flavor. CNS is one of those dishes which is challenging to make flavorful without relying on salt.
