Shrimp Soba

Written By beth_danowsky

This recipe really is as good as it looks. The best thing about this recipe is that it can be adjusted to taste and ingredients can be swapped out as needed. For instance, if you want to make it gluten-free, you can trade the soba noodles for rice noodles or zoodles and use gluten-free tamari instead of soy. If you want more heat, feel free to add siracha or extra red pepper paste. Want it thicker, reduce the broth by 2 cups. Love broth? Add some more in to taste! If you need less sodium, use lower sodium broth and cut the soy sauce down by 1/2.

Soups are wonderful because they are versatile and can be consumed for days… Enjoy this really great recipe designed by the chef in our home, Stephen, who also happens to be my husband.
