Soba Noodle Soup with Shrimp and Veggies

Need dinner on the table in a pinch?

Need dinner on the table in a cinch?

Need dinner on the table in a lrinch?

Oh, you don’t know what a lrinch is? Oh, wow!  Well, it’s an….um….it’s this super……uuuh, they said it……well, it’s …. OH HEY LOOK OVER THERE!

Weird, it’s gone now. I guess you weren’t fast enough.

Look, all I’m saying is that we all need a little lrinching in our lives from time to time. Whether it be with meals, in the home, or even in our soul innards.

Please don’t admit me. This makes total sense in my head.

Tell you what. Make this soba noodle soup and you’ll totes know what I mean. In less than half an hour, you’ll be slurping up silky soba noodles, poached shrimp and little power-packed bites of edamame and red bell pepper, all beautifully bathing in a rustic broth.

It’s so marvelous you’ll do the lrinch.

Oh, that’s right! It’s a DANCE!

…thank you for being there for me during this.

Soba Noodle Soup with Veggies:

What it took for 2:

* 2 bundles soba noodles
* 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch slices
* 3 garlic cloves, minced
* 1-inch chunk of fresh ginger, minced
* 3 scallions, thinly sliced, divided
* 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 1 (14.5 oz) can low-sodium beef broth
* 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
* 1 cup frozen edamame, thawed
* 2 cups water

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high.

Add the garlic, ginger and scallions; saute 2 minutes, or until fragrant.

Add the beef broth, soy sauce and water. Bring to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook roughly 5 minutes, until they slightly soften.

Toss in the red bell pepper and edamame. Cook 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp and cook 2 more minutes, or until opaque.

Ladle a good helping into a bowl and garnish with the remaining scallions.

You will not believe the taste. You just won’t.

    I don't think it gets much better than a bowl full of noodles and veggies. I'd literally be inhaling those soba noodles. :)

    Looks good and good for ya! I may try it with my "cheater" ramen broth - two parts chicken broth, one part dashi broth and soy sauce to taste. Mild, versatile and Asianesque. Also, the togarashi spice blend (mixed pepper, sesame seeds and dried orange peel) is great with any kind of soba.

      Uh-oh...I don't know what dashi broth is?!?

        Dashi is a Japanese soup stock. It's made in numerous different ways depending on what you're making it for. Kombu (seaweed) + water for clear soups and hot pots, and kezuri-bushi (dried tuna flakes) for simmered dishes & noodle dishes. Any easier way it to just buy hon-dashi which are dashi granules and cook it up. I always have a little jar of hon-dashi on hand. This soup was (was : meaning I already devoured my portion) absolutely delicious. I have a huge pack of soba noodles that I've been trying to use in recipes other than cold with dipping sauce. Also, I tend to forgo red peppers due to the high prices and stick with green, but I'm happy I splurged for this dish. The bright vegetables made the dish so appealing. I got off work a lot later than I was hoping to tonight (8:15 p.m.) I was starving and by 8:40 p.m. I was sitting down to a nice hot bowl of soup. I, however, made the portions exactly as you had written and I had about 4-5 servings... not two. I wonder if my soba bunches are a lot bigger? I don't know.

          I'm so glad you liked the soup! And yes, I know what you mean about it being way more than 2 portions. We definitely had leftovers, but I was just basing my "portion" size on the little bundles of soba noodles. They call each "bundle" 1 serving size. But I'm with ya - it made a lot of soup! Thanks so much for the comment!
