Mom's Ginger Chicken Soup with Tofu Noodles

Whenever we start to feel sick or actually come down with some sickness, my mom would always make her chicken soup for us. It is very basic and doesn't involve alot of ingredients at all. In fact, just your simple chicken pieces or a whole chicken cut up, and LOTS of sliced ginger to cook with it.

Ginger has many benefits like anti-inflammatory and cold and flu prevention. There is usually a pot each week and we would just drink this instead of water. This time I decided to try adding Shirataki Noodles (basically tofu noodles).

20 calories? No cholesterol? No sugar? YES PLEASE!
Recipe for chicken broth:
1 whole chicken cut into pieces
Stock pot full of water
1 whole ginger- cut into chunks
Kosher salt
Japanese Hon-Dashi (flavoring agent)
1 stem of green onions- minced
Shirataki tofu noodles

We usually boil the chicken with the bones and ginger until the chicken is close to falling apart. Then we will season it with salt and hon-dashi (Japanese fish bonito flavoring agent). Follow the direction to prepare the Shirataki Noodles. Add in the noodles at the end and top with minced green onions. End result is a very light chicken soup with strong hint of ginger. The ginger compliments the chicken and Joseph absolutely loves this dish. He will have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and eat bowls and bowls of it.

Here is Joseph enjoying the tofu noodles with his all time favorite chicken soup. Slurping it up and trying the tofu noodles for the first time. He was totally amazed of tofu being squeezed into noodles.
He loves his Pororo training chopsticks

Slurp, slurp, slurp!

Until then, Enjoy!
