I come back today with the promise of a soup recipe for my friend RS, who lives by herself and often works late. By the time she comes back home, she is so dog-tired that the idea of cooking something for herself does not appeal to her at all. She ends up eating out and then burning calories on the treadmill!
I have been there and done that too! Hence my experiments with food often are results of my own experiences.
RS, this soup is for you and hundreds of bachelorettes who fly high but like the comfort of their own kitchen. Ingredients for Fried Noodle Soup are:
6 cups broth/stock (vegetable or chicken)
1 cup fried noodles
Half cup bean sprouts
One and half cup bok choy, stems removed
Few flowerets of broccoli
Handful of very finely sliced green onions
Quarter cup julienned carrots
Handful of cilantro leaves
2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon green chili sauce
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Little dice of unsalted butter
Salt and pepper for seasoning
In a large open mouth sauce pan, boil the stock with little butter and add all the vegetables one by one – starting from the most hardy. Season with soy sauce, chili sauce, and black pepper powder. Check on the salt as soy sauce already is salty.
We don’t need to cook the vegetables, its important to maintain the crunch and the color in this soup.
I wouldn’t suggest making this soup ahead of time, as it is important not to have soggy vegetables in it. Cook and serve only when you are about to eat.Comfort food on your couch will never let you down! Ask the boys from The Beatles…
