Chilli, pak choi cabbage and spring onions are the vegetables bringing more flavour into this tasty duck and noodle soup. Soy sauce and brown sugar complete the broth’s spicy flavour, inspired by the Asian cuisine. Fry the veg in sesame oil (pak choi is great for stir-fries) for a soft, nutty flavour. The thick udon noodles go great with this soup, as they are mild-tasting and traditionally used in soups.
