My Daughter and I made this "on the fly" after returning from an authentic sushi establishment hours before. Inspired, yet still hungry for more, we decided to look up a simple soup to satiate our needs. Perfect! Quick, easy and versatile. While we didn't have all the ingredients in our pantry, the base recipe was great.
I definitely recommend the "low sodium" recommendations. i.e., soy sauce, chicken broth. You can always add salt, you can't take it away. We used low sodium soy sauce, broth, canned portabello mushrooms, ginger powder, minced garlic and finely diced shallot,& shredded carrot. We skipped the cabbage, spinach and replaced spring onion with shallot, because we didn't have it. We Salt and peppered to taste.
We were fortunate to have Mirin and Udon noodles. I highly recommend. It really DOES make an authentic difference. We recommend the Udon noodles because of cooking time and texture. The Mirin because of it's subtle sweetness. The shallot worked just as well for flavor, but I can see how the green onion does make it aesthetically pleasing.
Either way, it was a very light, crisp, comforting, pleasing and satisfying result. Preparation was easy. Great recipe with innumerable applications. In this case, simple was perfect. Thank you!
