Asian Noodle Soup Recipes
Asian noodle soups are so easy to prepare. When Ben and I spent a month in Asia, China, Singapore and Hong Kong, soup was our standard fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Soup and Noodles
Nothing’s more comforting than soup and noodles. It can be a broth soup or a creamy soup. Noodles can be rice or egg or pasta like. Doesn’t matter to me. All of it is luxuriously delicious and I can sip away at this delectable delight.
Spring Herb Soup
If you’ve never tried to grow you own herbs when the weather permits, or even indoors on your window sill, then give it a try. It’s not a difficult task, and having these beautiful herbs right at your disposal for using is so soul satisfying. Another plus is that it sure does help the grocery budget because fresh herbs are expensive.
This soup uses a mixture of fresh herbs. I tend to use more of those delicate herbs like basil, thyme and tarragon. But I don want the hint of the more woodsy and pungent fresh herbs like rosemary and mint. Then don’t forget cilantro and parsley. Always winners in your mixture of herbs for this soup.
Herb Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
You can certainly add meat to this recipe if you wish. I’d cook separately some bone in skin on chicken and then shed the meat from the bone. Or you could use a nice pork chop, slice it thinly and actually let to cook in the hot broth. Adjust your time accordingly for the broth.
But, I don’t need meat in this soup. I don’t want to take away from the earthy and woodsy flavors of the intense mixed fresh herbs that elevate the bone broth making it more delicious.
Actually you could take just the bone broth part of this recipe and use it for sipping or as a broth soup.

It must be cooked for 14+ hours in order to derive the nutrients from the bone marrow, collagen and more.
Just know that all bone broths aren’t created equal. And, while KF is a tad bit more expensive, it’s worth it. When you use my discount code, you could be in the ballpark of your budget.
Asian Noodle Soup
This noodle soup is all about the herb infused bone broth. Yes, there are a few ingredients to elevate the flavors and bring on the more Asian flair. These ingredients are easily accessible at most grocery stores.
Noodle Bowl Soup
Noodle soup bowls can be customized with vegetables to your liking.
For us, we’re really into snow pea pods, radishes and carrots.
And, I love the julienne or matchstick cut for the veggies. Yes, it might take a few minutes longer to do, but you really have more of the authentic Asian feel with the soup.
