Easy Yee Mee Noodles Soup

Loved this super easy and fuss free yee mee noodles soup because it’s packed with a collagen loaded home cooked soup base. Recently I started to make my own soup stock again using pork big bones, chicken feet, chicken carcass and simmering it over the gas stove for 5 hours, which is not my longest for the records though. My longest was liked 10 hours and there was when the chicken feet and carcass totally dis-integrate into the soup and turns all collagen-ally milky white.

But for this time, I actually halved the time because I started off late in the day. Nevertheless, it was still good as a soup base. All I did was some light seasoning of the soup with a touch of shallot oil and salt and pepper to taste. Added some minced meat and lots of green vegetables and further topped with a beaten egg and fried ikan bilis. As simple as it gets but as delicious as it can !

I am a big eater of noodles so I really enjoyed anything relating to noodles. And this yee mee noodles is one of my favorites. In fact, it goes on very well with fish soup too. And with a ready home cooked stock, this meal is easily beefed up in less than 20 minutes. Just slightly longer than instant noodles but much healthier and no MSG !
