Noodle Soups

Page 1 of 1

Soups and noodles are a good marriage as noodles can make a light soup go a long, long way. I usually prefer buckwheat noodles in my soups because they are fairly strong (don't come soft too easily) and are light on the tummy. I often use rice noodles as well. I don't like soggy noodles at all which is why I never freeze noodle soups (unless freezing the base first and adding the noodles when reheated). I would never buy noodles in a plastic pot (so popular with students) but when I was younger it used to be my main diet. I shiver when thinking about it because I was constantly ill with colds and flu like symptoms and constantly had a stomach cramp. I blame the noodle soups and if I had known then what I know now, that noodle soups are so, so easy to make I would have made my own, without a doubt.

The perfect balance between noodles and soup

Coconut and Salmon Noodle Soup

This soup is the perfect one to make if you have a bit of leftover salmon in the freezer or fridge.

A light and lovely soup, perfect when you need a dinner not too substantial

Hot and Sour Mushroom Broth

This recipe is an adaptation of a similar recipe I found in a book called Veggie Chic by the great author Rose Elliot.

Not the easiest soup to make but very much worth the effort

Mussels and Coconut Noodle Soup

This is one of those recipes which has an endless ingredients list.

When on a hike, preparing a simple, yet tasty meal is very rewarding

Simple Trail Noodle Soup

I know it is probably much quicker buying ready made trail food but let me tell you...most of what is sold out there is rubbish.

A lovely and fragrant soup with lots of flavours

Thai Laksa

I know that the recipe seems very, very complicated.

A delightful soup, perfect for mid week

Thai Noodle Soup with Shrimp

This soup is so good and it is fairly quick if you can get your hands on some decent Thai green curry paste. The ones that are sold in health food stores are usually quite nice.

A filling yet light meal full of complex carbohydrates and energy.

Wild Mushrooms and Noodles Trail Soup

Me and my husband are keen hikers. We love nothing more than packing our bags on a Friday evening, heading into the Icelandic wilderness.
