Japanese Udon Noodle Soup

I made Japanese Udon Noodle soup today. I didn't use a recipe, I just made up a version based on what I thought would go into it and it turned out rather nicely.

First I boiled a few cups of water in a saucepan and mixed to taste, a few tablespoons of prepared miso mixture into the hot water.

Once the water boiled I put in two small packages of udon noodles, zucchini chunks, a chopped up stalk of broccoli and a small bunch of baby bok choy.

In a frying pan I cooked and browned some minced beef with a finely slice red onion.  This is not your usual meat accompaniment to udon noodles but it was what I had on hand and it turned out quite fine. If you have some prawns or slices of beef you can top the udon soup and vegetables with these if you prefer.


Enjoy!

beautiful soup! By the way, I recently found a recipe for noodles. . .but stretching them out looks incredibly complex. I need to wait to try it when I can fail several times in a row!

Hi SIF, I've never made udon noodles but after your comment I googled the idea. It looks quite simple but like you I will want to have some time to experiment before I give it a go. So many recipes, so little time, lol.
