noodles in soup

jmax Nov 12, 2008 08:31 AM

I hate adding noodles to a soup and having them turn to mush while soaking up all the broth while sitting in the fridge for a few days. Any tips on cooking and storing noodles separately from the soup. For example - should I rinse the noodles with cold water, stir some oil into them while they are cooling. I want to heat the soup in the microwave and add the noodles once it is hot.

    I would rinse and drain them, then store in a zipped plastic baggie. No oil. Throw them into the soup when you reheat.
    Hope this helps.

      I like to make a big pot of chicken and vegetable soup then add whatever starch I am going to use to each portion right before serving it. One day it will be egg noodles the next day it will be rice or dumplings.
