For the past 3 days, I’ve been on a strict diet known as the military diet, and have been eating some boring and icky (cottage cheese) foods. However, my sacrifice did not go in vain, as I ended up losing 3 pounds. The max amount of pounds that this diet could help you lose was 10 pounds, but I’m not greedy. I’ll gladly take the 3 pounds that I lost. Anyway, I decided to treat myself to a delicious meal and to make up for the tasty food I missed because of the diet. I went to the Asian market over the weekend and picked up a package of soba noodles. I’ve pretty much cut out all pasta and rice in my diet, but was craving for noodles, so I decided to opt for the healthier option of buckwheat noodles. So today, I made kake soba, which is the hot way of enjoying soba noodles in a soy flavoured broth. Overall, it was pretty simple to make and I basically used some leftover roasted chicken breast and other ingredients that were laying around in my kitchen and fridge. Hope you guys enjoy the recipe! Also, after adding up all the calories that went into it, it came just under 300 calories.
3 1/2 Tbsps of Kikkoman Memmi Noodle Soup Base 2 1/4 cups of water (dilute the soup base) 1 Tbsp sesame oil (for the broth) 100 g (1 bundle) of soba noodles 1 stalk of scallion (chopped) 1/4 onion (thinly sliced) 2 eggs (soft boiled, or cooked in any way you like) 2 pieces of dried seasoned seaweed (finely chopped) 1/4 of large roasted chicken breast (sliced) Roasted sesame seeds
To start, in a medium sauce pan, add the memmi soup base along with water and sesame oil. Bring the sauce pan to a boil, and then reduce it to a simmer to keep the broth warm. Cook your soba noodles following the direction on the pack of the package and split it among two bowls. Lay your sliced chicken breast in the bowl, along with chopped scallion, thinly sliced onion, and seasoned seaweed. Ladle the soup along the inside edge of the bowl, and sprinkle sesame seeds on top, along with more seasoned seaweed if desired. If you like it spicy, you could some chili pepper flakes or chilli oil.
