Chicken soup with Edamame Noodles

I love noodle soup- it is always so comforting and yet substantial if made with the correct ingredients.

I made mine using Yutaka Edamame Soybean Noodles. These are high in protein and gluten free.



  • 2 Chicken fillets (thinly sliced)
  • 2 chopped Spring onions
  • Mixed vegetables – I bought  Sainsburys stir fry vegetables that had mangetout, baby corn, tenderstem broccoli, pak choi, lemon grass and a red chilli (If you cannot a pre-packed packet one buy the ingredients separately.
  • 1 tablespoon Tangy Yakisoba
  • 1 tablespoon Soy sauce
  • 1 Vegetable Stock Cube
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • Szechuan peppercorns 
  • Thinly sliced Ginger (About 2 cm cube)
  • Sesame seeds
  • Half packet (100g) of Edamame soybean noodles
  • 1 teaspoon BART coriander paste


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of rapeseed or sesame seed oil in pan. I did not have sesame seed oil so I heated rapeseed oil and added a teaspoon of sesame seeds to it.
  2. Add chicken and tangy Yakisoba and salt and let this cook
  3. Take the chicken out the pan, leaving the juices in. This will stop the chicken from overcooking while you cook the vegetables
  4. Add 3/4 of the spring onions, Szechuan peppercorns, 1/2 the ginger,  lemon grass and 1/2 the red chilli, coriander paste and let this cook for about 5 minutes ensuring it does not burn
  5. Add the stock, the rest of the vegetables and the soy sauce and  let this cook for a couple of minutes
  6. Add in the chicken and then put in about 1 litre of boiling water.
  7. Simmer the dish for about 15 minutes to get all the juices integrated
  8. The Edamame noodles cook within 7 minutes so whilst the soup is simmering, cook the noodles. Once cooked, add into the soup.
  9. In a separate pan, heat some oil and add 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, rest of the chilli, spring onions and ginger. Once it sizzles switch it off. This is for garnishing.img_3748
  10. Put the soup in a bowl and sprinkle with the garnishes.
  11. Enjoy

Hope you enjoyed reading the recipe and are able to try it out.
