The mercury in our thermometer is dropping, so we are now collecting the best soup recipes to make for the cold winter nights. Next time you are home late from work – because the roads were so bad, of course – whip up a steaming bowl of warm udon noodle soup. You can omit the chicken and use vegetable stock for a vegetarian-friendly family, or swap in beef with beef stock for a slightly different flavour. We made this after a long day, and it was just what we needed!
1) Slice raw chicken breast, season with salt and pepper and cook until done.
2) In a separate pot, stirfry mixed vegetables, and once soft, add stock of your choice. Bring heat up until soup boils.
3) Once the soup is boiling, add liquid sauce of your choice to chicken. We used hoisin sauce, soy sauce and hot sauce.
4) Combine chicken in its sauce to soup and stir together. Before serving, separate and add udon noodles. Stir until noodles soften.
5) Serve and enjoy!
