Thank goodness it has been rainy here is Austin, we need the rain! The rain also means, soup!
So no homemade noodles. It was a major fail. I will keep working on them. I think I will ask for a pasta machine for Valentine’s day…
I served this as an after school snack before the twins went off to work out for 4-5 hours, and when they left they asked if they could have it for dinner too after dance and gymnastics. Thus I ate leftovers so there was enough for them.
But here is the recipe for the soup I made.
- Sauté a white onion with a little EVOO in the soup pan
Add sliced carrots(about 1/person) mushrooms (a full handful or more whatever kind you like) lemongrass ( 2 stalks) and garlic (1-2 minced)
- After 4-5 minutes add 4 cups vegetable stock and 2 cups water (you can also use organic lemongrass or miso broth
- Then I added the following, red miso (2 tablespoons) soy sauce ( 1/3 cup) and a little rice wine
- I also squeezed in a little OJ, not sure what made me to this but it was yummy
- Let simmer a little
- I had made soft boiled eggs earlier and put my steak in the freezer 45 minutes ago to make slicing easy.
- Bring soup to a boil and I added 4 ramen noodle mixes, 2 handfuls of Chinese cabbage, shredded and the steak which was sliced thin.
- Add any seasoning you like, like crushed pepper, ponzu or what not.
- At the end add scallions.
- Pour into bowls and add 1/2 egg on top.
Since my noodles failed I used organic ramen noodles.
I am a home cook that does things my way. In my kitchen, I make breakfast, pack lunches, prepare snacks, and cook dinner. During the week, we eat real food that is homemade, organic, and local. On the weekends we do explore more of our local restaurants. I bake my own bread, juice fresh oranges every other day, and make my own kombucha and other weekly favorites.
