- A large pot
- Spatula or big spoon
- Ladle (preferably wooden)
- Chopping board
- Prepare all your ingredients separately for an uninterrupted incredible cooking experience.
- Dice carrots first and celery according to your desired size. Chop them up into medium slices because for adding texture to the noodle soup dish. Dice other veggies like onion or green onion and also mince the garlic. If you prefer smaller portions, feel free to do that.
- In a large oval-shaped cooking pot, start heating the oil a bit on a low to medium flame.
- Add diced carrot, onion, green onion, celery, garlic, and cook all the veggies to soften them. Add the required amount of pepper and salt. Mix it well by stirring with a ladle to avoid burning.
- Once you smell the veggies’ fragrance, especially onion and garlic, add the chicken broth, tender chicken small pieces, and normal water. Bring the mixture to a boil. Wait for around 10-15 minutes for the mixture to come to a boil.
- Add 1 tbsp—soy sauce to it for the Chinese flavor. Add your desired favorite noodles to the broth. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, occasionally stirring, until noodles are completely ready. You can add 1 tsp of cornflour to it to thicken the soup.
- Serve hot immediately. This step is very important to have good noodles. If you leave them out for a long time, they might absorb all the soup and lose its textures.
