Thick, hearty udon or soba noodles make this quick soup substantial, yet it’s not too filling to serve as a first course for an Asian-style meal, like a colorful veggie stir-fry.
- 32-ounce package vegetable broth
- 4 ounces udon or soba noodles
- 6 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh or jarred ginger, to taste
- 2 to 3 baby bok choy, with leaves, sliced
- 1 medium red bell pepper, finely diced
- 3 to 4 scallions, sliced
- ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce, or to taste
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine the broth with 2 cups water in a soup pot and bring to a rapid simmer.
Break the udon noodles into small pieces. Add the noodles, mushrooms, and ginger to the simmering broth. Cook until the noodles are al dente, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the bok choy, bell pepper, scallions, and cilantro, and cook for just 2 to 3 minutes longer. Season with soy sauce and pepper, then serve at once.
