Japanese Onion Mushroom Udon Soup
When this contest was presented to me, my first thought was I would do a updated version of my Hawaiian Saimin Soup. That after all does use udon noodles in it. The more I thought about it plus, I admit the mushroom flavored Fortune udon noodles kept calling out to me, I decided to be inspired by Hibachi restaurants.
I was at one recently, and I was served this Japanese onion mushroom soup. It was really good and it looked so simple to make. Knowing that these noodles cook up within minutes, I decided to do a fancier version of that soup.
Using the mushroom flavor packet from the udon with some of ANGELO PIETRO sesame miso dressing and also the ginger dressing as well. I picked those up at the Fabulous Food Show in November and been waiting for an excuse to use these in a recipe. The broth just came out so wonderfully good.
Besides this wonderful Oriental flavor of this Japanese Onion Mushroom Udon Soup, you can whip it up within 15 minutes. So now that we have these chilly winter days now, this soup will warm you up within minutes. Plus it is also very filling.
Check out these recipes:
- 1 pkg (7 oz) Fortune Mushroom Udon Noodles
- 1 teaspoon Angelo Pietro Sesame and Miso Dressing
- 1 teaspoon Angelo Pietro Ginger Dressing
- 1 tablespoon cooking sherry
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 carrot, shredded
- 4 whole mushrooms, sliced thin

In a large pot combine the mushroom seasoning packet of the udon noodles with the chicken broth.
Next add the Angelo Pietro Sesame and Miso and the Angelo Pietro Ginger Dressings.
Finally, add the cooking sherry give everything a stir so that the seasoning packet is dissolved in the broth.
Stir in the green onions, garlic, mushrooms, and carrot.
