Chicken Soup gets a remake with fresh vegetables, soba noodles, soy sauce, and fresh lemon juice in this Chicken Soba Noodle Soup.
Where I live it's generally cold 8 to 9 months of out of the year. That means that we eat a lot of soup in our house. I like to make a huge pot of soup that we can eat for several days. We like to enjoy our soup with rolls, homemade bread, and grilled cheese sandwiches.
We generally have chicken noodle soup once a month. I make the soup and my husband makes homemade noodles. While both of us really like it sometimes it's nice to have something a little different.
When I saw the photo of this Chicken Soba Noodle Soup I was sold. It had the same base as my chicken noodle soup but it used soba noodles in it instead of homemade noodles. It also had sugar snap peas, scallions, and mushrooms in it. I liked the idea of using different veggies then we normally have.
The soup gains additional flavor from soy sauce and lemon juice. The soy gives it an Asian flare while the lemon juice really brightens it up.
We enjoyed this twist on the classic chicken noodle soup and I liked how simple it was to make. It made enough for us to have it for two days. I'll be making this recipe again soon!
