Asian-style noodle soup

    25 min

    In Asia, there are different kinds of 'noodle soup'. This one is a great comfort food on a cold day, but also light and healthy. Quantities are arbitrary - adjust to own taste. Very important to add the shallots as they give the fragrance and flavour. Instead of egg noodles, sometimes I use macaroni. If you are adventurous, eat with chopped hot chilli pepper or add some dried chilli flakes to make the soup spicy.
