The JSL Food Blogger Challenge is back again this year and I'm happy to share with you this recipe for soup! Using the Fortune Udon Mushroom Soup and whipping up some tasty little Ginger Meatballs to add in with a few veggies makes this soup a hearty meal.
I love the texture of these Udon Noddles and it takes only a few minutes to cook so I know that will make you smile but how about some creative add ins? I'm a fan of blending flavors and the hint of ginger in these bite size meatballs is the perfect touch with the mushroom base.
Get inspired and try them yourself. Anything goes and I'd love to hear what you would make!
Pick them up at Albertsons, Safeway, Shop Rite, Acme and Price Rite. Also see more about JSL and Fortune Udon Noddles on the website and follow along on Twitter and Facebook.
