I think I’ve said this before but I love to make (and eat) soup. It’s so fun to cook because everything goes into the pot and you end up with this delicious meal.
The soup I’ve made today is my take on Japanese ramen. It is traditionally made with a pork broth but I made a vegetarian version since I don’t eat pork. It is a noodle based soup with toppings like sliced meat, green onion and soft boiled eggs. Instead of sliced meat, I used sliced extra firm tofu, I also added some extra veggies. It may not have been the most authentic recipe but it was amazing.
This was a very thrown together soup so I don’t really have measurements of my ingredients, I will do my best to approximate. It is very easy to make this soup though and the amounts don’t matter too much. The recipe I have given is enough for 3-4 people.
