There are some particular food that I wish to eat when I have a cold. This is one of them. The essential ingredients for this dish are Udon Soup, Noodles and Egg. I always season it lightly as it is a sick food for me. You can add other ingredients such as green vegetables and Asian mushrooms. It can be a very comforting meal on a cold winter day like today.

1 Serving

Ingredients

300ml Dashi Stock *OR 300ml Water & 1/2 teaspoon Dashi Powder
1 tablespoons Sake (Rice Wine)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Mirin
1 serving Cooked Udon Noodles
1/2 tablespoonful Dried Cut Wakame *optional
1 Spring Onion *finely chopped
1 teaspoon Potato Starch Flour *mixed with 2 teaspoons Water

Method
  1. Heat Dashi Stock and Sake (Rice Wine) in a large saucepan or pot, season with Salt, Soy Sauce and Mirin.
  2. Add Cooked Udon Noodles and Dried Cut Wakame, and cook until Udon Noodles are soft, OR absolutely soft. *Note: As you cook longer, you have less soup as the noodles suck up the soup.
  3. Add finely chopped Spring Onion, add Potato Starch mixture, and stir. When the soup is thickened, add Egg, and stir until Egg is softly cooked.
  4. *Note: When you cook the noodles absolutely soft, you don’t have much soup and you don’t need to add Potato Starch at all.
  5. *Tips: A small amount of grated Ginger is a good addition.
