Yesterday, it was back to snow… I got caught in a snow squall on my drive home… (but next week brings hope of 60°+ weather again). Soup for dinner it was! And since I was lucky enough to get a fresh package of udon noodles, I couldn’t wait to make udon noodle soup.

Shrimp & Udon Soup

Shrimp & Udon Soup

1 package of fresh udon noodles, 1 Tbsp. sesame oil, 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger, 1 tsp. mince garlic, 12 pieces of shrimp, 4 c. vegetable stock, 2 Tbsp. miso paste, 2 scallions (sliced), 2 c. edamame beans, 10 stalks of baby corn, fresh cracked black pepper

Saute ginger and garlic in oil. Add miso, pepper, scallions and stock and bring to a boil. Add baby corn and edamame. Add shrimp and udon and boil for about 6 minutes, or until shrimp is pink and noodles are done. Serve hot!

Try adding/swapping various veggies: shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, mung beans, zucchini, etc…

Miso based soup two days in a row… now that I’ve had my fill, it needs to warm up again.
