Very good! I made it for lunch on a short RV trip. Left out the tofu but did add some chili paste like a reviewer suggested. My liquid held up great but I did use the soft soba noodles so they heated up quickly. For a light lunch it was great if I was to prepare it for a hearty dinner I would add more of the shrimp. Thanks for posting. :)

This is a wonderful, tasty soup! I did, however, have a slight problem when cooking the noodles. With 4 minutes left to go (according to the package directions) the liquid was rapidly disappearing. Luckily I had another can of chicken stock so I added it and was able to finish the noodles. Other than that I followed directions as posted except for adding some chili paste for a little kick. ;) I see myself making this soup often but I would like to try it with more shrimp and spinach because I thought they got a little lost in all the noodles. Don't get me wrong, this soup is great as is and I really enjoyed it! Thanks so much for posting, mikekey! It was perfect for a cold, windy, Seattle day. :)
