This soup recipe was born after visiting Itadakizen in Shrewsbury and eating their creamy mushroom ramen. I was inspired to make a creamy mushroom noodle soup, and although theirs is clearly superior, I think this is quite tasty too. The soup consists of shiitake mushrooms, onions, vegetable stock and herbs, along with wheat noodles. It is then topped with spring onion, grated carrot and sesame seeds.
1. In a large saucepan over a low-medium heat, add in the oil, onion and garlic. Allow to cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Next add the mushrooms, give everything a good stir and allow to cook for 10 minutes.
3. Once the mushrooms have softened, add the stock, herbs and soy sauce. Season with salt and plenty black pepper. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
4. After 10 minutes, blend with a blender or immersion blender until completely smooth. Then return the soup to the heat, add in the noodles, cover, and allow to heat through for 5 minutes.
5. Finally stir through the cream, then ladle into bowls and add the topping if using, then serve.
I hope you give this delicious mushroom noodle soup a try! And if you do, be sure to tag the picture at our Instagram so we can see :)
