While You’ll Love This Udon Noodle Soup

Perfect For One – This udon noodle soup recipe is perfect if you’re looking for something quick to whip up for one. But if you are looking for more, use the handy tool in the recipe card, under ‘servings,’ to adjust to the number of people.

Flavourful – You will love how all the flavours come together in your bowl. My delicious tip is to let the soup simmer for an extra 2-3 minutes to bring out more of the flavours.

Quick – A delicious and nutritious soup in only 20 minutes? It doesn’t get better than that!

Ingredient Notes

Shiitake Mushrooms: One of the more popular mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms are loaded with a rich, earthy flavour. And like this recipe, they are best when simply sautéed in a pan with just a few ingredients.

Silken Tofu: Did you know there are different kinds of tofu? This udon noodle soup recipe calls for silken tofu, which is also referred to as soft, silk, or Japanese-style tofu and has a softer consistency than regular tofu. Because of its softness, it crumbles easier than regular tofu and has more of a creaminess than regular tofu.

I am definitely going to make this soup – have you tried freezing it? I like to make extra portions of soups and freeze them for later.

Maria Koutsogiannis

you know what, I haven’t frozen this one yet! I gobbled it up so fast but honestly I imagine it freezes just fine!
