I came up with this today when trying to figure out something to do with a few veggies and a bag of cooked rice noodles that had made it to the end of the food shopping week. We really enjoyed it and it is also pretty healthy too.
- 53 fluid ounces vegetarian chicken stock
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped up
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
- 1 cup green onion, including the green tops, roughly chopped
- 1⁄4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup light soy sauce
- 1 cup mushroom, thickly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup frozen corn
- 1 cup bamboo shoot, from a jar
- 2 cups carrots, shredded
- 1 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes
- 13 1⁄2 ounces rice noodles, already cooked
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Put the stock, garlic and ginger into a large pot and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Add the onions, rice wine vinegar and sauce and bring back to a boil.
- Add in the mushrooms, corn, bamboo shots,shredded carrots and dried chili flakes. Allow to boil for about 5 minutes.
- Put the noodles and black pepper into the pot and cook for two or three minutes just until they are warmed up.
- Divide into bowls and enjoy.
Mmmm Sarah, this was good, I made exactly as the recipe said an oh boy it was good, mind you by the time I got to the bottom of the bowl my mouth was on fire but in a good way. My DH loves hot hot food, and he really liked this so I am very sure I will be making it again. Great recipe thank you so much for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.
This is such a fast soup to make, and it has amazing flavour. I used powdered ginger, thick Udon noodles and cut the vinegar in half. We loved it. Thanks for the recipe.
I did not make this exactly as the recipe called for. I did not have fresh ginger, so I used the ground ginger I had on hand. I used chicken broth and added some crushed red pepper flakes and half of a white onion. Then I added the green onion at the end. I had never bought rice noodles before and I am still not sure I bought the right thing because they were called rice sticks...but that is all they had. Since they were so thin I didnt cook them first, just put them directly from the bag in the pot. Well.......they were LONG! ......I should have broken them up first. Anyhow, it was delicious and I thank you for a great recipe.
