Egg noodles soup

I cooked egg noodles soup for my dinner yesterday (it was really a last minute decision as my hubby decided that he wanted to go wash his car and asked me to have dinner first). I was lazy to go downstairs to buy food so I just scavenged around in my fridge and found some simple but nutritious ingredients to make my dinner. Since it was so yummy, I reserved some for Alicia. It's really simple and easy, just like instant noodles - but without the MSG! :)

Ingredients:
  • Stock - this is a MUST to make the noodles tasty!
  • egg noodles
  • cauliflower (or other veggies of your choice. I used this coz Alicia usually has broccoli for lunch and cauliflower for dinner so I always have these two veggies in my fridge)
  • egg
  • fresh shitake mushrooms
  • a pre-packed portion of chicken fillet (optional since there's already egg. Feel free to interchange the two sources of protein)
Method:
  1. Soak the egg noodles in water for awhile to soften slightly.
  2. Rinse the shitake mushrooms, remove the stalk and slice them.
  3. Wash the cauliflower and remove any brown spots.
  4. Bake the pre-packed portion of chicken fillet and cut/shred into small pieces after it is cooked.
  5. Set the stock to boil in a saucepan.
  6. Once the stock boils, add in the cauliflower and egg noodles.
  7. Once the noodles have softened (you can pick a little strand to try if it's soft enough for the toddler), add in the shitake mushrooms.
  8. Crack the egg and add it to the saucepan. I like to have my egg in small pieces when I eat noodle soup so I will stir quickly (but not too hard in case the yolk disappears into the soup totally).
  9. Add the baked chicken pieces/shreds in and voila! the nutritious meal's ready. :)
Add a small amt of salt/sauce if preferred.



As my darling's not really a soupy girl (yet), I gave her the noodles without the soup. Although she didn't drink the soup, the soup's a crucial ingredient as it makes the noodles tasty! And most importantly, in her bout of fussiness about food recently, she ate this dish!

It's really a very convenient dish to make since it's something that the whole family can eat for lunch/dinner so there's no need for additional work! Hurray! :)
