Soba Noodle Soup

The weather in Wisconsin recently has been pretty chilly.  Although it still hasn’t snowed a whole lot, the air is definitely colder and it feel much more like Winter.  Cold weather is often hard for me to handle.  I get chilled very easily and it takes me a while to warm up.  This means that not only do I crave something warm for dinner, but I walk in the door feeling like I should bundle up in a blanket on the couch – not think about what is for dinner.

Side note: I know I was begging for snow before, but now that the Holidays are all over, I’d be find with there being no snow again until November….but I’d like the weather to be warmer too….

This recipe solves both of these problems.  Soup is definitely a warm, cozy, food, AND it is very easy, and quick, to make.  This is another delicious recipe from my friend, Savvy Julie.  You can find the recipe here.

As I said before, this recipe is incredibly easy.  Many soup recipes that I’ve come across involve cooking for many hours – this one is completely finished in less than an hour.

The flavor of this soup is very light and subtle, but still delicious.  I probably could have added more garlic and it would have been even more delicious! To me, it tasted very similar to the appetizer soup you are served at many Japanese hibachi restaurants.  Also: Soba noodles are delicious.

Ease: A, Just mixing, measuring, and cooking.
Taste: A+, perfect for when you are looking for something warm and cozy, but that isn’t going to weigh you down.

Would I make it again? I think so!  I was easy, and tasty, and reheated fairly well too!

  1. I’ve made this soup twice since Julie posted it and I LOVE IT. I find I can generally make it in less than half it an hour which makes it perfect for those “oh no, I have nothing to cook”/”I don’t feel like cooking” evenings.

  2. […] wrote a review of Julie’s Soba Noodle Soup that I wrote about a few weeks ago (it’s funny how the internet works sometimes).  Anyway, […]
