Nutritional values

The soup shows what Japanese cuisine stands for: clear aroma, useful for the body. The clear soup contains a lot of easily digestible protein, which is needed for the muscles, and little fat, which is beneficial for blood fats and increased cholesterol levels.

If you can't get udon noodles, you can also prepare the soup with glass noodles or rice. It is an excellent starter for an Asian menu and is then sufficient for four people.
