Chinese Style Noodle Soup | Recipe

April 18, 2016

There’s nothing as comforting as soup, the next level of comfort though is adding some noodles to the mix. So today I am sharing with you my Chinese Style Noodle Soup recipe so you can get your comfort food on too.

This noodle soup is the perfect Sunday evening dinner, with Monday looming this warming and hearty soup is perfect. I took the idea from a chicken based recipe, but had prawns in my freezer to use up so I edited and changed a few things to suit. I was also sent some wonderful stock to use from Essential Cuisine, and what a way to show it off, by putting it in a wonderful noodle broth!

I reckon you could make this dish a whole lot spicier if you preferred, putting more chilli in and you could modify it easily to be vegetarian. To make it veggie switch the stocks and using soy sauce instead of fish sauce and omitting the oyster sauce, just add a little palm sugar to sweeten.

It’s been a long week for me, with people to see and loads of plans and silly Emma has planned the same for this week too. I’m a bit of a numpty really although I have annual leave booked for the week after. I can’t wait for some time off and some time with my family and Mr W. I’m still finding this being on my own a bit difficult, some days I feel like I am there and then other days I want to hide away. Sigh! Anyway, hopefully it won’t be for too much longer.

What’s your go to Sunday evening dinner? Are you a noodle soup fan? Let me know in the comments,

    YUM! I love chicken soup although I have to say I tend to go for miso in a recipe like this. Looks like one for the OH to try though! x x

    I love Noodle Soup – it’s comforting yet healthy. It’s a good one if you’ve had a heavier weekend food wise!

    This looks delicious and it would be so perfect right now in all this snow that we’re having!

    Omg Emma this sounds and looks delicious. I’ll have to send this to my fella – he loves Thai food! He recently just bought the Hot Thai Kitchen cook book, I’m not sure if you’ve seen that Youtube channel? You’d love the recipes!

      That sounds like a YT channel I need to subscribe too- thanks 🙂

    I can imagine this soup is really soothing when you have a cold. Just what I need right now. Although I would have to make some adaptations to make it veggie friendly.

      I’ve put my suggests for making it veggie in the text below the recipe 🙂 Hope you feel better soon x

    This looks good, I highly recommend chilli oil infused with shrimp (Way-On brand, they also have a veggie version) as the added shrimp gives more umami taste 😀

      Mmmmm sounds delicious!

    This sounds so delicious, and the Essential Cuisine stock will take it to a whole new level. I can’t use any other brand stock now!

    • Reply MissPond April 21, 2016 at 9:18 am

      It’s so great, I’ll definitely be buying more when I run out!

    Hello from a fellow doctor!

    This recipe is making me miss China, which is ironic because I’m travelling at the moment and I found your blog the other day when I was missing home. I’d recommend you try rice noodles as an alternative of you haven’t already. I lived off them in SE Asia. So yummy!

    Love your blog!


    • Reply MissPond April 21, 2016 at 9:16 am

      Glad you love my blog- I am jealous that you’re off travelling 🙂 I LOVE rice noodles, I would normally use them for this kind of thing but I was trying to use up some others!

      Oh you should give it a go- you never know you may enjoy making it yourself!

  • Reply Rachel April 18, 2016 at 9:38 am

    I absolutely love the sound of this, I often chuck any old veg from the fridge into mine x

    • Reply MissPond April 21, 2016 at 9:13 am

      I usually do with normal soups, but don’t usually have pak choi in!

  • Reply Imogen Clegg April 18, 2016 at 9:33 am

    I love soups with noodles or pastas in so I might have to give this a go!

    • Reply MissPond April 21, 2016 at 9:11 am

      Oooh I’ve never tried a pasta soup! next time I will have too 🙂

  • Reply Marianna April 18, 2016 at 9:22 am

    I love a good Chinese style soup and you’ve inspired me to give it a go! Last Sunday I made a lasagne and it was so much fun to make and a good, hearty meal before the start of a busy week! Hope you feel better soon – keep on powering through 🙂

    • Reply MissPond April 21, 2016 at 9:28 am

      Thank you 🙂 Let me know if you give it a go!

    I do like hearty soups like this one – I usually add coucous to my soups, but noodles would work just as well.

    • Reply MissPond April 18, 2016 at 9:35 am

      Oooh I’ve never thought of adding cous cous! Will have to try that 🙂
