Noodle soup

Today, on possibly the hottest day of the year so far, Emma asked for noodle soup for lunch. Noodle soup is a bit of a generic term in our house, the soup always has noodles in it, but the rest of the ingredients change depending on what is in the fridge. Today I made it with pork, but I often use chicken.


About 150g pork or chicken, chopped up small
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tin of creamed sweetcorn
500ml stock
Light soy sauce
5-spice seasoning
Vermicelli or fine rice noodles


Gently fry the onion to soften but do not brown it.
Add the chopped meat and cook through.
Pour in the tin of sweetcorn and the stock and simmer for a few minutes.
Season with a little soy sauce and 5 spice, taste and add more if necessary.
Break the noodles into pieces as you add them to the soup, then simmer for a few more minutes until they are soft.

Sometimes I use spring onions instead, or dark soy instead of light, a little cornflour if it is too runny etc. It's also great without the noodles if they are not your thing. All in all, a very adaptable recipe!

Here is Emma enjoying hers today:
