udon noodle soup

This Udon noodle soup is a Japanese inspired soup. It is an easy, well seasoned comfort soup. For all days of the week. In japan, China and other parts of Asia these types of soups are like a ‘fast food’ meal. You can get them anywhere at any time a day. Many people eat this soup for breakfast.

You can adjust this dish completely to your own liking. Some Udon soups are very well filled, while others prefer just a very well seasoned broth with the noodles.

Ingredient ideas for your own Udon soup

You can be as creative as you like with this dish. One main, and most important thing is the broth. Personally I like a very umami rich broth for this soup. You can check out the basic vegetable broth recipe here. For the noodle soup I normally add a good handful of dried mushrooms, and some miso paste. And then I let the ginger, lemongrass and chilli infuse in the strained stock for a while.

For the vegetables you can use; bok choi, spinach, broccoli, carrots, green beans or any other you prefer. You can top your udon noodle soup with herbs, spring onions (scallions) or toasted nuts or seeds. The possibilities are endless.
