What is the best thing about this soba noodle soup? It’s a one pot recipe!. I prepared this soup using lots of fresh vegetables such as bok choy, mushrooms, peppers, carrot, celery etc., It hardly takes 30 min to prepare if all ingredients are handy.
What I love about this soup are shrimps and mushrooms. Yes! I am a big fan of both. We enjoyed it so much that, I made this soup at-least 5-6 times in last couple of weeks before making it for this post. I am sure, this Asian soba noodle soup will give you one more option to fight cold winter nights. Or, you can also consider this whole grain based Healthy Barley Soup as an alternative.
