I recently joked with a friend that I’m on the “Asian soup diet” because I literally can’t stop cooking, order, and eating Asian-inspired soups. Made with fragrant ginger, toasted sesame oil, and any combination of noodles, protein, and vegetables, Asian soups are the ultimate meal-in-a-bowl.

While I typically use rice noodles or swap the noodles out for shredded cabbage, recently I was craving hearty soba buckwheat noodles. Made with 100% buckwheat, these noodles have a great texture and delicious flavor.

Shrimp is often my protein of choice since I always have a bag of wild shrimp in my freezer but you could just as easily use pulled chicken or thinly sliced sirloin steak. If you have wontons on hand throw a couple of those in as well. Bok choy adds texture and fiber keeping you full and satisfied for hours to come. Kale and cabbage work well too if you don’t have it on hand.

Your spoon is waiting.
