Spicy Soba Noodle Soup



Hi everyone! I am so excited to announce that I was nominated by Kale Studios for the Versatile Blogger Awards. On her blog you’ll find lifestyle advice, food for thought and yummy recipes. As required by the award, here are 7 facts about myself.

1. I am French, duh…
2. I have a ridiculously good memory when it comes to lyrics (and a terrible one otherwise).
3. I have over 66,100 views on one of my stopmotion videos (http://youtu.be/BCtoxM77jLo).
4. I have a not so secret obsession with Taylor Swift. Guilty.
5. Breakfast is my favorite meal by far.
6. I would pick hot water with lemon and honey over cough syrup anyday! (this is relevant because I have a cold right now…)
7. I hope that one day I will open my own restaurant/cafe.

I feel so grateful for all of my followers and I cannot begin to explain how gratifying it is to know that people actually care about my work. I nominate Frankie’s Feast, La Petite Casserole, The Greek Glutton, Feisty Veggies, Vegetarian Ventures, A Life Moment, A Spoonful of Nature, Cassie’s Kitchen, The True Spoon, and Stay Hungree for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Now let’s get down to this week’s recipe: my Spicy Soba Noodle Soup!


Here’s yet another noodle soup to fight the freezing cold. It’s inspired by a spicy Korean Soup that I recently had and loved. It’s perfect to warm up and feel some comfort during the harsh winter times. I don’t know about you, but it’s been snowing here in Philly.


To be perfectly honest, I think this is one of the best noodle soups I have posted on the blog so far. I’m super excited about this new recipe so definitely let me know what you think about it if you try it! Bon appétit!

  1. I have no doubt you will be very successful turning no. 7 into a reality! You are naturally gifted and passionate about your cooking. I think that’s the bulk of what makes a good cook or chef or kitchen guru! 🙂

  2. Oh boy that looks and sounds so delicious! It MIGHT even be a dish that my “meat and potatoes” husband would enjoy because he likes food that has a kick to it. Although, I may have to add some meat to it….but then again, Portobello is kind of meaty….

    1. Thank you! I find them in the Asian section of my local grocery store. It’s usually near the bottom shelves. You can find dry ones or pre-cooked packages. Both are good options but the second one is quicker!
