Seitan and Soba Soup

Seitan and Soba SoupOn wet spring evenings when the weather is damp and chilly I love to sit down to my comfort food – a steaming hot bowl of thick noodle soup. Soba noodles add a rich flavor that blends well with seitan and vegetables. When I have a late spring cold I also like to add mustard, especially a spicy mustard, for some added heat.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup sliced carrots
  • ¾ cup chopped celery
  • ¾ cup chopped green onions
  • ½ cup finely chopped seitan
  • 4 cups vegetarian broth
  • 1 cup soba noodles, broken into 2-3 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons mustard (optional)

 Instructions

  1. Place broth in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil, approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Add carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until soft.
  3. Add onions, seitan, and noodles and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes.
  4. Add mustard just prior to serving.
  5. If storing for later use, additional water may be needed as the soba noodles tend to absorb water.

Yield: Approximately 4 ½ cups
