Miso Soup with Udon Noodles

Today’s miso soup features Udon noodles. Udon noodles, thick wheat flour noodles typically found in noodle soup dishes with clear broth, are also a great addition to miso soup. Miso soup with dense and chewy Udon is hearty and filling, making it a perfect side dish for any meals or a light lunch. You can use frozen or dried Udon, whichever is available, but be sure to defrost or cook the dried noodles before adding them to the miso soup. We’ve added Tenkasu tempura bits as a topping, which adds richness to the soup. If you want a little kick to the dish, sprinkle some Shichimi hot pepper. Hope you like it!
