Here is the recipe for an easy Asian chicken noodle soup. A warming and cooling recipe in one pan. It's a fast and easy recipe (on the table within 25 minutes) and with a delicious taste.
When the weather gets hot, a cooling soup is delicious. This oriental style chicken soup is spicy and refreshing at the same time. A recipe that's made quick and easy. That's nice, because you can enjoy the warm weather outside on the porch if you want.
You can make this soup as spicy as your taste buds can handle, by adding additional red pepper. When you've got children, I advise to use ¼ to ½ red pepper with the seeds removed. For adults ½ to 1 pepper, deseeded and if you like the real hot stuff add the whole pepper, including the seeds (but you are warned).
How do you get even more flavor?
This chicken soup already has a lot of flavor, but maybe you still want something extra?
You can add salt and pepper to taste, but don't forget to consider ground garlic, cumin or onion powder. Delicious spices that go very well with this soup. And if you want even more pit use a cayenne pepper.
Can I add more vitamins to this soup?
You can also serve this soup as dinner, and if you want to do so, add bean sprouts, sugar snaps and bok choy for more vitamins.
When doing so, add the sugar snaps to the soup and cook for 2 minutes. Cut the bok choy into small strips and wash the bean sprouts. You put the last two vegetables in your soup bowl and pour the soup on top (so you don't have to cook them separately). This way the vegetables stay fresh and crunchy.
How do you make a vegetarian Asian noodle soup?
Sometimes you want a day without meat or you're having a vegetarian guest for dinner. Not a problem, when you make this vegetarian variant.
In that case replace the chicken meat with strips of shiitakes. And instead of chicken stock, use a vegetable stock. And substitute the fish sauce with dark soy sauce. This way you're going full veggies (even vegan).
