This soup has a wonderful blend of flavours. I skipped the noodle-making process (thought I had soba noodles in the pantry, but had to use Chinese wheat noodles instead). Will certainly use buckwheat the next time. I added a red pepper for colour and snowpeas cut into thirds in place of the peas. The heat from the wasabi was perfect. I used beef stock and decided there was no need to add more salt or pepper. Sensational and easy-to-make recipe. Thanks, Bergy, from the bottom of my chicken feet.
My family loved this soup. I used store bought noodles though as we can't have ordinary flour. I added finely sliced chicken to it to add a bit more filling as we had it as a main meal. I used powdered stock, but i think i will make the effort to use the real stuff next time. Added chilli instead of wasabi.
