Kitchen Experiments: My Homestyle Soba

I like making this when I have to cook up a quick lunch for myself.


A handful of dried soba (about 50-75gms)
Egg Tofu Cubed
3-5 shiitake mushrooms sliced
Straw mushrooms
¼ cup store bought Japanese soup base
Chopped spring onions for garnishing (optional)


Bring water to a boil, add soba and cook for about 3 minutes, add in mushrooms, tofu and soup base and cover till it comes up to a boil again and check if the soba is cooked. Once cooked, sprinkle with spring onions and EAT! And if you like, you can add an egg just after you turn off the fire.

Sometimes I can’t wait and I am too lazy to wash up too many items so I’ll just slurp it from the pot! Yum!
