Hey guys, sorry for the lack of blog posts. I’ve been busy with my job search lately but I’m back now!
For today I have a very tasty yet simple recipe for those of you who love to have noodle soup. It’s a cold day out there so I was inspired to cook an Udon Noodle Soup with Thai Flair. Following are the ingredients and recipe needed:
- 500 ml of Chicken Broth
- Your choice of greens, I chose Snow Pea Tips
- Udon Noodle
- Enoki Mushroom
- Wonton Powder
- Instant Sour Shrimp Paste (also called Tom Yum Paste)
Before I start to explain the cooking process I would like to name off the places you can find the ingredients. All of these ingredients can be found at your nearest Chinese or Asian Grocery supermarket. If you’re from Ottawa I bought everything from Kowloon Grocery Store in Chinatown. The photo above is my mise en place for the soup. First thing you need to do is heat up the broth and while it is warming up you need to wash the greens and drain, gather a bunch of enoki (however much you’d like) and cut off 1.5 inches off the bottom and rinse thoroughly. Tofu simply needs to be drained and cut up and the remainder should be kept in a container filled with fresh water. (Don’t forget to change the water daily to keep the tofu fresh). Once you’ve prepared all of the ingredients all you need to do is toss all your ingredients in the soup including however much udon noodle you prefer to eat and add a touch of the instant sour shrimp paste. I added half a teaspoon. Simmer on medium high for 5 minutes and VOILA! you’re done!
