Spring may have already sprung but the weather is still cold enough to warrant Spicy Lemongrass Chicken Udon. Warm and comforting, this soup is good all year long but is best served on chilly nights when you can fully appreciate it.
My dad and I often order udon noodles at Japanese restaurants but never make them at home.
Lemongrass is a flavor my family loves but never has at home.
I like enoki mushrooms in ramen at restaurants but never have them at home.
What better way to embrace these ingredients than to meld them together in flavorful soup?
Happily, these ingredients were inexpensive.
Four stalks of lemongrass = $0.30
One pack of large enoki mushrooms = $1.99
One pack of dried udon noodles = $1.50
Thank you 99 Ranch. You may have just opened but I’m officially adding you to my usual rotation of Asian grocery stores. (Don’t worry Asian Food Market and H-Mart, I still love you both!)
