Soba noodles are my favorite. Especially if they’re in a soup. They give me a huge cozy feeling. They’re also easy to make. I love soups and stews in general, whenever it’s cold, I gear up to make chili, ramen, and anything else that cozy AF.
The other day it was a bit cloudy so I made this soba noodle soup. With whatever was in my fridge. So, most of the ingredients here are guides and I suggest you go with what you like the most! Meaning, if you have kale—add kale! If you have other veggies, add them… I like to think cooking started with whatever we had available to us, not what someone decided as food.
What you’ll need: 🔪
- 2 cups of chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
- 90 grams of buckwheat soba noodles
- 1/4 cup of yellow squash
- 1/4 cup of broccolini
- 1/4 cup kale
- 1/2 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
- Cayenne pepper (to your liking!)
- Half a lemon, juiced
- Boiled egg
Add the chicken stock to a pot a bring it to a simmer. Add sesame oil, cayenne pepper, lemon. When it’s slightly boiling add the soba noodles. Add the vegetables and simmer. Once the noodles are aldente take the soup out of the pot and into a bowl. Top with a dash of soy sauce and that’s it!
So, what is it that makes this soup good? ❤️
It’s comforting and cozy. Perfect for the cold weather. Also, it’s a great alternative to chicken noodle soup. 🍜
