Better Than a Soup Cup.Jul 05, 2006
Annie Chun's Udon Soup makes a quick meal that is larger than traditional soup cups and without the reconstituted texture. The soup bowl holds about 3 cups of soup, which is a nice size for lunch. It's all-natural and vegetarian, consisting of noodles in a flavorful soy soup, with dried mushrooms, onions, bok choy, herbs and spices. The ingredients come in 3 packages: a bag of noodles (not dried), a liquid soup base, and a packet of dried soup toppings. Just add boiling water.
Actually, the instructions on the package are unnecessarily complicated. They tell you to add water to loosen the noodles, drain it off, add the other ingredients, and then add more water. This isn't necessary. Maybe you need to loosen the noodles if you are going to microwave the soup. I suggest stirring the noodles after one minute in the microwave. But if you have a kettle handy, empty the 3 packages into your soup bowl, add boiling water up to about a half inch from the top of the bowl, and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes. This is faster, easier and uses less water than the instructions recommend, and the soup comes out perfectly.
Annie Chun suggests adding spinach, snow peas, broccoli, mushrooms, shrimp or tofu to make your soup into a more complete meal. Some of those things would need to be cooked before you add them, but I find that fresh mushrooms and frozen peas make excellent additions that require no pre-cooking. If you put some sliced or diced mushrooms into the soup when you add the boiling water, they will partially cook while they sit for 5 minutes, acquiring a nice dense texture that is neither raw nor limp.
Ingredients: Noodles: wheat flour, water, tapioca starch, lactic acid, salt. Soup Base: soy sauce (water, wheat, soybeans, salt), shiitake mushrooms, sea vegetable, evaporated cane juice, rice wine, yeast extract. Toppings: green onion, maltodextrin, bok choy, tofu, red pepper, shiitake mushrooms, guar gum. Product is manufactured in a facility that uses peanuts. . The soup bowls are made of a corn product [...] that is biodegradable. Not that anything degrades in a landfill, but at least the bowl isn't toxic.

Great Vegetarian SoupMay 22, 2009
By J. E. Davis
I love kim chi, but I can't eat most Kim Chi soups as they have fish/seafood stock in them and I am allergic. I was very happy to find this product as it is vegetarian, thus safe for me. It also only has soy in the form of soy sauce. That is another big plus. I like to prepare it topped with a poached egg that I mix through the soup.
Since amazon doesn't have all the ingredients for this, here they are )from the Annie Chun site):
Noodles: wheat flour, water, tapioca starch, wheat gluten, lactic acid, salt.
Sauce: fresh chili pepper, Chinese cabbage extract, naturally brewed soy sauce (water, wheat, soybean, salt), rice wine, garlic, salt, mushroom extract, maltodextrin, water, roated sesame oil, fermented wheat protein, evaporated cane juice, spices, garlic*, distlled vinegar, yeast extract, onion*, cabbage*, sugar, corn oil, carrot, celery, natural flavors, cucumber extract, red wine.
Toppings: kimchi*, green onion*, carrot*, millet syrup, maltodextrin, shiitake mushroom*, sesame seed*, guar gum, seaweed*.

great microwave mealFeb 04, 2010
By E. Chan
Most of the time when I don't have a free minute to spare on going out to buy food, I microwave up one of these. They're delicious, healthy and easy/quick to prepare. Plus they're cheaper than going to a Japanese restaurant and having udon there. I eat these relatively often so I've solved most of the problems people had with the cooking process.
I've found that the vegetables rehydrate best if you stick them under the loosened noodles and then fill the bowl up with water (just trap the vegetable square under the noodles). This solves the problem of the gritty tofu as well - mine always come out soft and chewy with that method. Also, if possible, microwave the noodle bowl instead of using boiling water. The noodles come out much softer and the miso paste dissolves easier if they're cooked in the microwave for the 2 minutes.
I hope this helps the upset reviewers below. I have these at least once a week and they've become a rather delightful staple to my diet.

Very Nice Tom Yum SoupFeb 17, 2007
By Todd M. Hess
I added a half of dozen or so of frozen pre-cooked shrimp and this was great as an evening meal. The package includes the spices that one would expect to find in a Tom Yum Thai soup. While the quality may not be what one might expect to find in a good Thai restaurant, preparation in five minutes is surely an acceptable compromise.

Getting this AGAINJan 11, 2007
By Buzzing Bee
Yep, like the title, I'm getting this again. The first shippment lasted 1 week. Here's my review... This is a great quick meal for lunch in the office. Instead of spending 5 or 6 bucks to get add extra lipids to my arteries, I decided to try these noodles.
The noodles were already cooked sealed in a vaccum bag. The dehydrated vegtables actually look like vegtables after you add water to it. Overall, I felt it was a pretty "authentic" Udon experience. I really enjoyed these noodles. Also, at 110 cal per serving ( there is 2 servings in the bowl ) its a not too bad for you. If you want something quick, great tasting, and not good for you, this is your item.
The sodium is a bit high, but you can always control that with how much of the soy sauce you put in. Overall, I give it 4 stars... cause there's always room for improvement!
