From the Test Kitchen

Hearty, delightfully chewy udon noodles are a Japanese comfort food staple perfect for pairing with umami-rich broths. Here, we’re making our udon noodle soup with white miso—a Japanese fermented soybean paste perfect for highlighting delicate flavors. We're finishing each bowl with a soft-boiled egg, whose creamy, rich yolk is perfect for stirring into the broth.
