Once you buy the oils, you generally have the ingredients laying around the house, and they are very inexpensive. If you have one, I suggest Trader Joes, they sell this stuff dirt cheap. I would say there is enough protein in here to not add meat, but some chicken breast is tasty if you are extra hungry.



Boil 1/2 pound of pasta. Add ingredients to food processor or blender, starting with the ginger and garlic. Mix into fresh pasta and top. Voila!, a beautiful cheap delicious meal. You know it's cheap because I am on a college budget!

  • 8 oz. soba noodles or whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1-2 tsp. chile-garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch

  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 8 oz. flank steak, trimmed of fat and thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 10-oz. package frozen shelled edamame (about 2 cups), thawed
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Note: Hoisin sauce and chile-garlic sauce can be found in the Asian section of most large supermarkets.


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add soba noodles (or spaghetti) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are just tender, 6 to 8 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.

Meanwhile, whisk lime juice, hoisin sauce and chile-garlic sauce to taste with cornstarch in a small bowl.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer the steak to a plate using tongs.


Add bell pepper to the juices in the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add edamame and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir the sauce mixture and add to the pan along with the beef and any accumulated juices. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the noodles; toss to coat. Top with cilantro.

I first saw a recipe for this from Life's Ambrosia and then checked out a few other Chicken Udon Noodle Soup recipes online and ended up combining about four recipes/ideas. When remembering I had some frozen cooked cocktail shrimp, I decided to add some of those too ;-)




Heat one teaspoon of the olive oil and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook chicken just until browned. Transfer to a plate. In the same pot add remaining olive oil, garlic, mushrooms and ginger. Cook 5 minutes or until mushrooms are soft.


Pour in chicken broth, soy sauce and hot sauce (and shrimp if desired). Return chicken to pot. Reduce heat to low and let simmer, covered, for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare udon noodles according to package directions. Divide noodles between bowls and ladle soup over the top. Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
