There is something comforting about soup, and more so when there’s noodles swimming inside the glorious broth. Not other is it easy to make, it’s easy to consume as well. I always think that slurping down the last drop of soup in the bowl is always a fun way to end a meal. Probably I get to put my face so close to the bowl, it’s literally in it. There isn’t much opportunities that calls for that.
The husband who is NOT at all a mushroom fan took every last bite from the bowl. Maybe he was just being nice. LOL. The little girls asked if it’s mushrooms in their bowl when they took a peek in it. I did inform them that we are going to try something new that night. And they loudly exclaimed,”I don’t like mushrooms, this doesn’t taste good.”, without even trying. However, they quickly changed their minds. Slurping down their noodle and broth, and asking for more. The littlest one even resorted to stealing meatballs out of her elder sister’s bowl!
So anyway… The original recipe calls for the meatballs to be shallow fried in a wok. I decided to bake them instead to reduce the amount of oil needed. If you can’t bake it because you do not have an oven, you can air-fry them. If you do not have an air-fryer, here is your chance to win one. I’m giving away a Mayer MMAF8 Air Fryer! It also comes with a baking tray for you to bake my absolutely delicious Best Moist Double Chocolate Muffins or any of my other bakes for your dessert!
