Noodle Soup Recipe

Is life more than just the glimmer of light reflecting on its surface? Let’s make a noodle soup and see if we can reach the depth of it!

We love put things into boxes, label them and treat them in line with our past experiences. Prejudices are the basic tool of the human brain that not only helps it survive in difficult life-threatening circumstances, like which lane to pick at the cash register but saves a lot of energy too.

Why is there Asian food?

Just think about how much energy the brain needs when processing new information. Solving a Rubik’s cube the first time takes hours intense brain work (for some a lifetime) but once it cracked, we can bring it down to mere seconds.

The same happens with any interaction the brain frequently does. It took a lot of time to learn how to brush our teeth properly but once the art is mastered, we do it unconsciously on a daily basis.

Even though some of us are really eager to learn new things, the majority of the people have a brain that is evolved to do the least possible, hence grouping things together as much as we can and call them the same. This is why all the food from Africa, Italy or Asia gets their umbrella term and left like that.

What’s in noodle soup?

Noodle soup can be anything as long as we put noodles in. Most of us though expects something similar to what we already have tried in the form of instant Ramen or Chinese takeaways. So, although it’s quite tempting to just make a chicken soup and throw some pasta in it, the end results -however delicious- won’t necessarily please anyone expecting noodle soup.

Noodle soups aren’t special because of noodles but because of the spices, herbs and vegetables used for their making. The ingredients are as versatile as many people making the soup by country, region, or family.

Some use sea food, others add chicken, eggs, pork, beef, or anything in between to personalize the experience but things don’t just stop there.

What are noodles made of?

The noodles itself can be made out of various ingredients. Probably many of us guilty of thinking, due to the noodles Easter origin, it is made of rice. Although that can be the case, it is not necessarily happen all the time. There are many noodles out which are made of other ingredients, such as konjac, buckwheat, yellow wheat, or plain old wheat that Italians use to make pasta.

Although nothing can stop us from making our own noodles – and homemade fresh pasta always tastes better- to get a more authentic Asian takeaway / cup noodles experience, our best bet is to grab a bag of noodles from a grocery store that sells them.

Lucky for those on low carb or keto diet, there are low carb shirataki noodles out there. The best news is that shirataki noodles aren’t something we just made up to please the ever-growing masses of keto dieters but it’s a traditional Japanese food made of the Konjac plant.

What’s the secret of noodle soup?

Of course, a healthy amount of caution is always advised before hoarding up a year worth of supply, so always try new ingredients to see if our body is ready to live on them.

Once we master the soup, we can try charting out into authentic pasta making adventures and invest in pasta making machines or master the art of artisan handmade pasta, just like our great great grandmothers did.

But for tasting the water just stock up with soy sauce, get some green onion, maybe a bit of ginger and some hot spices to see if Instant Ramen can be beaten.Noodle soup recipe - SunCakeMom

  2. On high heat saute until the garlic gets fragrant for about 2 -3 minutes.Noodle soup recipe - SunCakeMom
  3. Fill it up with the broth / stock. We can dilute the soup with some water so we’ll have more at the end but don’t add more water then the broth.Noodle soup recipe - SunCakeMom
  4. With the lid on, bring it to boil then turn the heat to medium to low and let it simmer 10 – 15 minutes. The longer ginger and garlic are in the soup the more pronounced their flavor will be. Try the soup and remove them when desired.Noodle soup recipe - SunCakeMom
  5.  Add the noodles. On keto, we can finely slice vegetables like zucchini, leek or we can simply use low carb Shiritaki / konjac noodles.Noodle soup recipe - SunCakeMom
