  • 5 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick
  • 2 large eggs
  • 14 fresh or frozen udon noodles two 7 oz. packages, (if you love lots of noodles, prepare 2 packages - if not then 1)
  • 6 oz. fresh bok choy washed and chopped or left whole
  • 3 green onions chopped (plus more for serving)
  • 10 oz. fresh sugar snap peas
  • 3.5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Fresh cilantro chopped, for serving
  • Crushed red chili flakes for serving


  • In a medium saucepan bring the chicken or vegetable broth to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium low and add the star anise and cinnamon stick. Allow the broth and spices to simmer, covered, for approximately 10 minutes to infuse the flavors of the spices into the broth. When finished, remove spices with a slotted spoon.
  • With the broth still simmering on low, gently crack the eggs, one-by-one into the simmering soup. Cook the eggs for two minutes before (very!) carefully add the noodles, bok choy, green onion and snap peas. Simmer everything together for 2-3 minutes and add the soy sauce and lime juice.
  • Remove from heat and taste. Add more soy sauce if needed. Divide the soup between two bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro and chili flakes. Best eaten immediately.
