Chinese Noodle Soup

Share the Recipe

A simple, delicious Chinese noodle soup with a broth that you’d swear came from your favourite Chinese restaurant! This is a midweek version so it’s made with store bought soup broth rather than a made from scratch broth.

Ingredients for 2 servings


3 cups chicken stock/broth, low sodium
2 garlic cloves , smashed
1.5 cm / 1/2″ ginger piece, cut into 3 slices (optional, but highly recommended)
