I don’t know about you, but it seems like everyone I know is under the weather right now (including my twins, step-daughter and hubby). Here’s a quick and soul satisfying soup you can make in under 15 minutes. It’s made with healing chicken broth, rich miso paste and yummy veggies. Whether you’re nursing a cold or just want a quick and delicious lunch, this Udon Noodle Soup is for you! Miso and Easy Miso concentrate is a great alternative to miso paste.
As you can see, the twins are feeling better already!! You can add some cubes of tofu or your favorite chopped up meat for added protein in this soup. If you don’t have fresh udon noodles, you can substitute with dried udon or another type of noodle.
One 12-ounce package fresh udon noodles
4 cups chicken
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup snow peas, sliced on the diagonal
1/2 cup fresh shitake mushrooms (or substitute with dried)
2 tablespoons white or yellow miso paste or 4 tablespoons Miso & Easy miso concentrate
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons cup green onions
