Healthy Soba noodle soup for kids


1. How to cook Soba noodles : Heat up a pot of water and bring it to boil. Soba noodles comes in individual serving bundles. I used one bundle for this soup, so remove the wrapper around it and Add the soba noodles to the boiling water just like we do with spaghetti. Cook till done, al dente. It will take 5 -8minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside in individual soup bowls.

2. In the mean time, heat oil in a sauce pan and add onion, ginger and garlic. When the onion is translucent, add chicken and stir fry for 1-2minutes and add the stock. When the meat is cooked, add the vegetables, Soy sauce and cook for 2 more minutes. Adjust the salt and Turn off the flame and Ladle the hot soup on the top of the soba noodles and serve immediately.
