Pasta Day - Japanese noodle soup
Japanese noodles (dry udon I think) with dashi broth, ume pickled plums, green onions and spicy sprinkles.
Probably not the most impressive pasta dish in the world, but excellent for soothing an upset stomach.
I used Kombu Dashi which has no fish in it (basically you simmer some seaweed), so this version of noodle soup is vegan friendly. Probably the most expensive part of this dish is the ume at about $1.25 each, but it wouldn't be any good without it. All the other ingredients come in at under a quarter, so in total, $2.75 per bowl. Not the most affordable, but for how calming this is on the tummy, well worth it.
