At long last, I'm posting a recipe for my ridiculously easy soba noodle soup.
Ridiculously Easy Soba Noodle Soup
-3 containers of vegetable stock (the large size)
-a handful of soba noodles (no exact measurement, it's just how you like it)
-1 cup of shelled edamamme
-2 carrots, peeled and diced
-2 celery stalks, diced
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 T. minced fresh ginger
-2 T. olive oil
-1-2 bay leaves
-salt and pepper to taste
Sauté diced vegetables, garlic and fresh ginger with olive oil. Once softened, add vegetable stock. I usually add one carton of low-sodium stock. Let boil and then bring to simmer until vegetables are softened. Add soba noodles and edamamme (I buy them frozen and toss them in the pot to defrost). Done! Makes about 4-6 servings.
