Shitake Mushroom & Soba Soup

What with our house hunting getting serious, I've lost my appetite from the stress! Now is the perfect time for a bowl of refreshing noodle soup to help lift the spirits! Yesterday I didn't feel like eating either, so I made this with chicken. Today I had run out of chicken, so I used a small tin of flavoured tuna instead. Delish!
shitake mushroom & noodle soup is perfect when you're not feeling your best
5 or 6 dried shitake mushrooms
4 cups of water
vegetable stock, salt reduced preferred
quick cook noodles, like organic soba
2 cups fresh veggies eg. green beans, organic broccoli, finely sliced cabbage etc
optional, a handful of shredded roast chicken breast OR 90g tin of flavoured tuna eg. sweet chilli
mushrooms and soba noodles cooking on the stove top

1. soak 5 or 6 dried shitake mushrooms in 2 cups of water for 30 minutes, then cut in half
2. dissolve 1 or 2 tablespoons of powdered vege stock in 2 cups of water
3. add vege stock, mushrooms with water, broccoli and green beans (and the chicken if using) to a saucepan and bring to the boil
4. lower heat and add the noodles and cabbage to the boiling water, (add tuna if using), simmer for 3 minutes
