Mushroom Noodle Soup

This soup recipe was born after visiting Itadakizen in Shrewsbury and eating their creamy mushroom ramen. I was inspired to make a creamy mushroom noodle soup, and although theirs is clearly superior, I think this is quite tasty too. The soup consists of shiitake mushrooms, onions, vegetable stock and herbs, along with wheat noodles. It is then topped with spring onion, grated carrot and sesame seeds. It’s fun to mix up textures when it comes to soup, the crunchy carrot and spring onion go well with the smooth soup and soft noodles
