Tofu Noodle Soup



Mmm, noodles! I sometimes get major cravings for a bowl of Thai noodle soup, especially when I see my omni family enjoying theirs with the traditional beef broth. Today my mom made this special for me. It hit the spot and was very easy to prepare. There really is no recipe involved. You just need a small pot filled with water where you will add a quartered onion, a clove or two of smashed garlic, a few baby carrots, a celery stalk cut into pieces, a 1/2" piece of peeled ginger and a tomato cut into wedges. Bring to a boil and add mushroom soy sauce, a teaspoon of sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for about half an hour. Add tofu cubes at the end before you serve. You may also prepare some boiled or steamed broccoli to add to your noodle bowl. Prepare your noodles of choice according to package directions (today we had flat rice noodles), put them into a large bowl, pour broth over noodles making sure to include a nice selection of veggies, add a tiny spoonful of chili paste or Sriracha hot sauce and stir it up. Then grab your chopsticks and slurp it all up!

Yum. I will sub in Wheat-Free tamari for the mushroom soy sauce. While it might change the flavor somewhat, it is the only way (I think) to make this simple soup gluten free. Thanks for the soup idea!
