Winter (officially) is almost here and the hectic holiday season is upon us.
Time for a big bowl of delicious soup … nothing can soothe better.
Contrary to what many think, soup-making can be relatively easy and quick.
Today’s recipe is a good example.
It’s an Asian-inspired main-course soup that draws on a number of fairly common ingredients.
The chicken stock gets some added flavour from garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil.
This is one of those recipes where it’s fine to use store-bought broths.
There’s a huge range of choices when it comes to the noodle for this soup.
There are fresh and dried, wheat and rice to name just a few. So pick your favourite.
This soup can include pan-seared firm tofu, or pre-fried tofu pieces that can be purchased at Asian markets.
For the greens, you can opt for baby bok choy or even spinach and a halved hard boiled egg on top, for protein and it’s one filling and oh so satisfying big bowl of soup.
