This hot pot recipe is easy for college students to make right in their dorm rooms. It's the perfect meal to whip up in the winter months.
Bring liquids and bay leaf to a boil in the hot pot. Add the udon noodles. When the udon is almost cooked but still slightly crunchy, add the kale. Cook until the udon and kale are both tender. Stir in the tofu and spring onions.
Turn the hot pot off completely. Remove the bay leaf and season with soy sauce as needed. Divide between bowls and enjoy!
