Vegetable, prawn and soba noodle soup

This soup took about 10 minutes to prep, cook and serve.

It was made with thinly sliced mushrooms, some shredded cabbage, beansprouts, chopped spring onions, raw prawns, instant dashi stock powder, nori flakes, soy sauce, sesame oil and soba noodles, simply brought to the boil in a saucepan with hot water and simmered until the prawns were done and the noodles were soft.
