This is a good recipe for udon soup, however I felt it was grossly lacking in salt. That being said, I wouldn't make it again. It was somewhat expensive to purchase the ingredients if you don't have them on hand, and it was a huge mess/not at all straightforward. For a solid, but somewhat bland soup, it wasn't worth the effort to me.

Like the first "rater", I agree that this soup required a lot more seasoning. We used regular soy sauce and still had to bring it to the table. Second, it required too much effort for the result. The soup was bland and too complicated to make for the return on the time investment. I am not one to shy away from complicated as I have Boeuf Bourguignon in the oven right now but when you spend three hours on that its worth it. This recipe wasn't worth the two hours.

I make a double batch and then freeze it. Follow the exact quantity for Bonita flakes and you will get a good consistency. I also add baby spinach.
