At-ease chicken and soba noodle soup

Ingredients:
Soba or other noodles (spelt spaghetti is a good substitute)
Chicken broth (I use low-sodium, single-serving packs)
Spinach (or other fast-cooking leafy veggies, like bok choy)
Cooked chicken
Mushrooms
Garlic

Cook soba noodles for ~3-4mins in saucepan.
Meanwhile, prepare other ingredients: slice mushrooms, mince garlic, shred cooked chicken, and prepare spinach.
Drain cooked soba and set aside. Wipe saucepan mostly dry and set back on the stove, on medium-high. Heat a bit of olive oil or cooking spray, and then sautee garlic, followed by mushrooms. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
When mushrooms are mostly done, add spinach, chicken broth, and shredded chicken. Turn heat down to low/medium (so the broth simmers very gently). Mix in the cooked soba and serve when everything is warm.

Verdict: Smooth, comforting, and nutritious. Great for sick days.

    • Soba in soup is delicious! The noodles are already so smooth that putting them in a soup makes them just really satisfyingly slurpable. 🙂
