It’s been raining here in Southern California, for days and nights. I haven’t seen this kind of rain for at least a few years now.
As you all know, California is having a serious drought and I am happy that finally we are getting the much needed rain.
On cold and rainy days, especially in Fall and Winter, one of my favorite things to eat is soba noodles soup, especially for my week day lunch.
For the days when I am not developing and testing recipes for my blog, I will simply whip up something super quick that takes only 15 minutes, for example: 15-minute soba noodle soup, Tom Yum noodle soup, fried rice, chicken fried rice, Tom Yum fried rice, kimchee fried rice, and so on.
Inpired by Baked by Nature, I decided to spice up my regular soba noodle soup with loads of Sriracha.
What a fantastic idea! The heat from the Sriracha spices up the plain soup and give it a fiery kick, and just perfect as outside is raining and the inside of my house feels like an igloo. Two thumbs way up!
I love soba because it’s the easiest noodles to make. There is no need to rush out to the market to buy fresh ramen or noodles as my pantry is always stocked with bundles with dry soba.
I also love it that the soba noodles are nicely tied up in a bundle, which is just enough for one person so I don’t even have to measure it before cooking.
For the soup, I always use Mizkan Bonito Flavored Soup Base, which turns regular water into an amazing broth just like Japanese restaurants.
So, the cooking process takes less than 15 minutes for me, including boiling the noodles, the egg, prep the vegetable, mushroom, and toppings. Easy peasy!
Try this amazing Spicy Sriracha Soba Noodle Soup when you are in need of comfort food. It’s my comfort food, and I hope you like it, too.
