soup du jour

happy thursday! just wanted to share an easy and yummy lunch (or dinner!) for those of us who are bored with sandwiches and salads, but don’t have the time to think about it TOO much and just want to make something quick 🙂

these are just jazzed up noodles, but they are flavorful and hearty – perfect for a work lunch.

you’ll need:
1 pack of Udon noodles or Bahn Cahn (the vietnamese equivalent, which i prefer because they are made from rice flour instead of wheat flour)
1 heaping cup of frozed vegetables – i used a peas, corn, carrots, green beans and lima beans mix
a big ol’ dollop of hoisin sauce (about a tablespoon)
wedge of lime

how to do it:
-prepare noodles as instructed on the package – i used a microwave safe pyrex bowl and it took 3 and a half minutes to heat up in our decrepit work microwave
-give the noodles and broth a stir, add the veggies, stir again, cover and heat for another 2-3 minutes
-add hoisin sauce and fresh lime, mix
-be delighted at the flavor explosion in your mouth
