You would think the amount of times I eat noodles, I would be sick of it. I can’t help myself. It’s an addictive comfort food to me, especially in the winter. Also, it’s still National Noodle Month so it’s only more of a reason to enjoy another bowl here and there!
What we have here is a bowl of udon noodle soup. Udon noodles is a thicker Japanese noodle made of wheat or corn flour. It can be cooked in various ways, but in this recipe it was cooked in a soybean based miso soup.
4 cups of water
1 dallop of soybean miso paste
4-5 shrimp with shell
Few slices of beef, thinly sliced
Handful of spinach, washed
1 package of udon
Bring a pot of water to boil, add in the miso paste, beef and shrimp and cook. Just before the beef and shrimp are almost done, add the spinach and the noodles and cook until it is brought to a full boil again. Adding the beef and the shrimp isn’t just for extra texture, it makes the broth more sweeter. What you will end up with is a deeeeeelicious hot bowl of udon noodle soup. Enjoy!
