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
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
