Udon soup with greens and garlic

On a bit of a Japanese food roll at the moment. We made udon the other night, I’d forgotten how easy it is.

You can serve udon noodle soup with just about any flavouring you like. I used some chinese broccoli, spring onions and garlic.

I just quickly stir fried the greens to char them a bit.

Here’s a neat trick: If you place a chopstick over the pot while the noodles are boiling, it stops the water from boiling over. I was skeptical when I heard about it, but it really works.

The soup stock is just from a packet dashi mix. I guess you could make your own, but this is much faster and very tasty.
