The broth is zesty and light but the addition of the noodles ensures that the soup is still filling enough to work for dinner. I used button and portobello mushrooms but any kind would work! The whole thing is ready in under 25 minutes too which is always a definite win in my books, particularly when I’m freezing cold after walking home from work and need warming up ASAP!
