Trying my New Asian Noodle Book

Asian Noodles by Maki Watenabe is my latest cookbook. I plan to go to the Japanese supermarket for the ingredients to make some of the dishes just as they are written, or at least close. However, I did have quite a few appropriate ingredients on hand, so I did the following improvisation.

Based on a recipe for Japanese soba noodle soup — I used the remaining duck and stock
from our New Year’s Eve dinner, along with dried mushrooms, snap peas, and tiny onions.
The recipe — which I adapted freely, called for togarashi
chili spice,. I actually had some on hand!

The noodle soup looks so comforting and yummy using duck and homemade stock!

Jamie Oliver (after I strictly followed his moves) "tought me" to improvise, often it even works ;-)

I'm a sucker for noodles of any nationality, and Asian noodle recipes are among the best. Sounds like a terrific book! Happy New Year!
