Introduction: RECIPE | MUSHROOM BROTH UDON
A very simple recipe idea for those nights when you come home from a long day and you just want healthy food in your stomach pronto. This is my easy Mushroom Broth Udon noodles with tofu, bok choy, enoki mushrooms and some parsley.
In this recipe, I'm using an organic Mushroom Broth by Pacific Foods and this stuff is delicious. I'm not kidding but it's tastier than any meat-based broth I've had. It's savoury but also slightly sweet and it goes so well with noodles of any kind, except for egg noodles. You can also swap out the tofu with some fish based tofu to give yourself more substance if you'd like. To amplify the taste of the broth, I've added a tablespoon of vegetarian Lee Kum Kee stir fry sauce. Yes, Lee Kum Kee offers vegetarian Asian sauces! They even have a vegetarian Hoisin Sauce and I bought both at my local T&T grocery store.
I hope you give this recipe a try, it's really perfect for the cold winters as you will find that it heats the body up instantly!
