Asian Chicken Soup with Soba Noodles

  • Last Updated:

Nothing helps you beat the Winter blues like a warm bowl of steamy chicken soup. It literally warms you up from the inside out. Today I am sharing my favorite Asian twist on the classic chicken noodle soup. In addition to being loaded in flavor and bursting with nutrients, this soup is a one pot meal providing all the protein, carb and veggies in one dish.

The best part? This soup doesn’t need hours of simmering – it literally comes together in just 15 minutes. Don’t have napa cabbage on hand? Try spinach, bok choy or savoy. No soba noodles? Try whole wheat spaghetti instead. As always, this recipe is more of a method than a specific list of instructions.
Don’t forget the sriracha. No fork required
