    BrotherAdso's Note:

    A warming, nutritious, and quick throw-together soup. Like a wonderful lo mein, but with less oil and in stock -- plus, this has a sweet-spicy and a hot-spicy variation here!

    1. 1
      Bring stock to a roiling boil.

      Add spices to taste. For a hotpot style soup, use ginger, garlic, szechuan sauce or chili paste, and chili oil. For a darker, sweet-spicy taste, use ginger, garlic, five spice powder, sesame oil, and some extra soy sauce.

      Add noodles and cubed tofu, simmer a few minutes to allow flavors to blend and noodles to cook partway while you get vegetables together.

      Add spinach, simmer until just tender.

      One of my favorite recipes to make a giant pot of and then eat for the rest of the week! (Just have to boil noodles every night.) I also did some substituting: bamboo shoots and baby corn instead of broccoli and carrots, and I'll often throw in whatever leafy green looks good, not necessarily spinach. And I mix spices and use soba for my noodle as well. But that's one of the great things about this recipe: you can throw in whatever you want, and it doesn't have to be the same each time! Highly recommended!

      This was delicious! But I cannot give stars because I made some changes: I omitted the carrots and added a green onion. And since I couldn't decide which taste I wanted, I combined both options of spices and was it ever good! The noodles I used was soba. Perfect. I liked this dish alot and will make it again and again. Thanks for such an easy and delicious soup recipe.
