Udon Soup with Vegetables

In the produce department of the grocery store they have Udon soup packages.

This is a quick easy meal.

I added a lot of extra vegetables.

Follow the directions on the package

Start with boiling the noodles draining them and setting them in your bowls.

Follow the directions to make the soup.

Heat one tablespoon oil.

Add  one sliced carrot

Two cloves of diced garlic

Only the white part of 3 diced scallions. Save the green parts for garnish

One stalk of diced celery

Cook till everything is soft

Add 4 cups of chicken stock

2 teaspoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons grated ginger

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Bring to a boil

Add two cups of broccoli flowerets

One can of drained baby corn

One handful of spinach

One cup of dried, drained  and re-hydrated shiitake mushrooms

Bring to a rolling boil

Ladle over the noodles

Top with the remaining scallions, diced cilantro, diced jalapeno and one stalk of diced bok choy

Serve with siracha sauce

Important notes.

Do not mix the noodles into the soup because it is impossible to serve and all the broth gets absorbed by the noodles.

Just pour the hot broth over the noodles that are in each individual bowl

Be careful using the pepper because it can overwhelm the soup
