We made this all the way back in June but have put off blogging about it because we are not exactly sure what we did.
Bear with us while we try to explain how we made this (delicious) Udon soup and when in doubt, experiment and try what sounds good to you!
Soup = putting in a lot of stuff and making it delicious through cooking :)
For three to four huge portions, we used:
Sprouts (two handfuls)
Green onion (2-3)
Nori (dried seaweed) (one handful - they grow!)
Chinese noodle soup mix (we used one from Asian Home Gourmet, but you can also use normal chicken broth)
Sweet rice wine (two-three spoonfuls)
Seasoning (pepper, chili flakes, curry)
Heat one liter of water in a large pot. Once hot, add the soup mix (or make chicken broth). While the water cooks, dice the chicken, green onion, and mushrooms. Add to the broth with the sprouts. Save a handful of the green onion to garnish the soup at the end.
Let cook until the chicken is cooked through. Then add the nori and the noodles. Let cook 3-5 minutes (or follow the directions on the package).
Season the soup with the sweet rice wine and seasonings.Garnish with green onion.
Serve in a large bowl and slurp away using chopsticks! Yum!
