My favourite yummy easy winter spicy soup


2 Cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 tablespoon tamari or soy
1 teaspoon miso paste (optional)
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
1 star anise
1 teaspoon grated ginger
noodles of your choice ( I like quinoa soba or udon) prepared according to packet instructions
a handful of:
snow peas or sugar snap peas
bok choi
shitake mushrooms (fresh or dried)
small cubes of tofu (optional)
bean shoots
chilli flakes, chopped corriander, sliced spring onions & fried shallots to garnish

Prepare your noodles.
Gently fry the ginger & star anise in a tiny bit of oil, just to release the flavour then add the stock and bring to the boil while adding the sauces & miso paste.
Be sure to stir in the miso paste properly otherwise you will end up with lumps at the end.
Once boiling add the veges except the bean shoots.
After 1.2 minutes add the tofu and then the bean shoots.
Cook for a further minute or so.
Place noodles in the bowl.
Pour over soup and top with garnishes.

Wa La!! So quick and easy and ymmy and good for you!!

You can mix and match ingredients- and play with sauces and flavours but this is my current favourite mix- enjoy!
