Udon are thick, savory Japanese noodles that are perfect for this soup recipe. You should look for them in the Asian aisle of your supermarket or order some online, or you can use spaghetti instead. Regardless of whichever noodle you use, this soup takes just 20 minutes to make and requires only 7 ingredients, and that includes water. After cooking the noodles, simply simmer the vegetable broth, water, mixed veggies, pork tenderloin, and ginger in a saucepan until the flavors meld together. After adding the noodles to the broth, stir in a little rice vinegar, and this flavorful, hearty soup is ready to go.
