We created this soup when the weather turned cold this winter and find ourselves turning to it time and time again when we need a healthy and satisfying meal we can throw together in minutes. Packed full of vitamins and cold fighting ingredients, it's comfort food without the guilt. The combination of udon noodles and broth sweetened with creamy coconut milk has proven to be irresistible for even the youngest members of our family. —Carolyn G
