Soybean Noodle with Yam Soup

This is similar to my post on Kocha Flavour Noodle Soup a family style/way of cooking a variety of noodles.  As I mentioned before, it is suitable to use soy bean noodles, flat rice noodles or instant noodles using the soup ingredients.
In the recipe, I added yam to the noodle soup.  With yam added the soup is thicker when the yam turns soft and more aromatic.

[serves 3-4]
4 bundle of soybean noodles [tau chiam noodles]
2 pieces dried mushroom - soaked and cut strips
1 tbsp dried prawns - wash and drain
150 gm meat slices - marinate with light soy sauce and cornflour
150 gm yam - peeled and cut chunks
1 tbsp chopped shallots and garlic
some cut chilli
seasoning - salt, chicken stock granules and pepper to taste
1/2 tbsp oil
1 litre water  
  1. Blanched noodles in boiling water to cook and drain [cook noodles as per instructions - depending on what noodles used].  Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a wok [I use my brass wok to cook and serve], lightly fry the yam, dish up and set aside.
  3. Add a little oil,  saute shallots and garlic until aromatic and golden.  Add in mushrooms and dried prawns, fry until fragrant, then add in the meat slices.  Fry for several seconds, add in water and seasoning.  Bring to boil for 5-10 minutes.  Taste to adjust seasoning, add in yam to cook over low heat.
  4. Add in blanched soybean noodles to cook.  The soup will thicken slightly, add more water if you like to have more soup.
  5. Off fire and serve immediately once the yam is soft.
  6. Scoop up noodles into serving bowls, garnish with chopped coriander and sliced red chilli and a dash of pepper. 
  • You can use any type of leafy vegetables you prefer.  I usually add more vegetables and try to cut down on meat.

Hi Kimmy, I like yam. Adding yam to a bowl of soupy noodle looks tasty! Yummy!

Hi Karen, somehow with yam added to noodles or rice does make a difference. This is something very common in our family home during our childhood days. We have to eat noodles with rice without other dishes. That time, we didn't know how to enjoy it but now we know why. It's to fill our tummy especially when there are so many children to feed.

Kimmy, I happen to have a packet of this soya bean noodle. I didn't know how to cook it, so I can now try this recipe :)

Hi Phong Hong, soybean noodles can also be fried. It is soft and chewy. You can add any ingredients you like but the noodles must first be blanched till al dente. With yam soup, it is good, smooth and slurrpy.

Hi Kimmy , the yam addition sounds interesting ! I haven't had yam ( does it thickens the soup ? ) in noodles before but it sure looks really good in that bowl of deliciousness :D

Thanks for your another wonderful link !

Hi Anne, adding yam does make the soup thick. The noodles and soup will be smooth and has the fragrance of the yam.
