This soup is healthy, includes all food groups and is quick and easy to make.

This soup is full of nutritious ingredients that will keep you away from the doctors.

Cooking a proper meal for the family can be done in 30 minutes, perhaps while the children have a shower.

It is also more inexpensive than takeaways. This recipe works out at about $3 per portion.

It is important that our children experience home cooking so that they, too, can create these memories for their children.

8 chicken legs or thighs (free range is best, of course)
2 packs udon noodles
2L chicken stock
2 handfuls of dried mushrooms (you can get them at the asian shops)
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 large handfuls of silverbeet, shredded (or spinach or any other green leaf)
2 carrots, julienned
oil for frying

1. Fry the garlic and ginger slightly.

2. Add chicken stock and all the other ingredients except for the silverbeet and noodles and simmer until chicken is fully cooked.

3. Add the silverbeet and noodles three minutes before chicken is done. Enjoy.
