Udon Noodle Soup

When the weather starts to turn cold, my cravings for warm soups go into full gear. With grey skies, dropping temperatures, and overall sogginess in Pittsburgh these days, soup becomes a no-brainer.

The best part? This took a mere 25 minutes to prepare. Start to finish.

This recipe is also totally flexible. Throw in whatever veggies you have on hand. Don’t have udon noodles or avoid gluten? Use soba (buckwheat) or rice noodles instead.

Whatever you do, make a big batch. You will want to nosh on leftovers for days to come.

  1. I noticed the disclaimer on the bottom of your posts that note if a recipe is nightshade or cinnamon free, are these foods you’re allergic to? How did you find out you were allergic to cinnamon? That seems like a random and hard to pin down allergy!

    BTW, the udon soup looks amazing. I need to get fresh noodles from the Asian market and make this soon!
