Baby Spinach and Gojiberry Somen Noodles

This noodle soup can be enjoyed nutritiously by kids and adults. My friend uses Somen noodles - a thin, white Japanese noodles made of wheat flour, when cooking for her 2-year-old because these noodles can be cooked fast (less than 3 minutes) and becomes soft when cooked - just perfect for a hungry (cranky) kid who is still learning to bite his food properly.

Moreover, spinach and wolfberries (gojiberries) are nutritious and healthy! Can you think of any side dish that goes with this noodle soup ? I can think of many...too many that I cannot tell you all at once right now.
