Vegetarian Noodle Soup Recipe

So recently Currys got in contact with me asking if I’d like to share a recipe as they are creating a student cookbook, you can read a little more about it here. So keeping in mind the need for a budget and something quick and easy to make I decided to use one of the recipes which my boyfriend taught me a couple of years ago. So here goes, here’s a recipe for a vegetarian noodle soup. 


2 eggs (beaten)
2 spring onions (chopped)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
1 litre water
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oil
2 Portions of dried egg noodles

Pinch of salt and a tsp of Sesame oil for seasoning


1) Beat the eggs together in a bowl and add half of the chopped spring onions to mix together
2) Heat a pan at the highest temperature and add the oil, wait for the oil to warm up as it needs to be hot for the next step
3) Pour the beaten eggs into the pan, let it cook through and mix periodically. (Aiming for the type of eggs in egg fried rice, so feel free to wok them at this stage but a pan is fine)
4)Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes, reduce the heat a little here to stop the egg burning
5) After 2 minutes add the soy sauce and mix well.
6) Add the water followed by the salt for seasoning and noodles.
7) Leave this to simmer for 7-10 minutes (or however long it takes for your noodle of choice to cook through) the water will reduce at the stage leaving you with enough for your two bowls of soup.
8) Separate your pan into two serving bowls, add a splash of sesame oil and the remaining spring onion to each bowl and serve.

This recipe is pretty basic and when you get used to making it you may find that you fancy more than a pinch of salt or more tomatoes but it’s a great recipe for altering. At step 6 before you add the noodles you could even add some chinese leaf, mushrooms or tofu. For you meat lovers, simply wok your meat of choice as you would for a stir fry or noodles and then add to the pan at step 4 with the tomatoes.

I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe!
Let me know if you try it out : )
