 Ingredients List

  • 5 c Vegetable Stock
  • Sm Onion, thinly sliced *
  • 2 x Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tb Minced Gingeroot
  • 1 1/2 tb Soy sauce
  • 3 x Stalks Bok Choy **
  • Sweet red Pepper, julienned
  • 1 c Broccoli florets
  • Carrot, shredded
  • 1 c Sliced Mushrooms (3 oz)
  • 1/2 c Peas
  • 2 oz Buckwheat Noodles (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 lb Firm Tofu, cut in 1/2" cubes
  • 1/4 c Watercress leaves


* or 2 scallions, chopped ** diagonally sliced, also shred leaves
GARNISH: blanched peapods, thin scallion slices, celery leaves, toasted
sesame seeds, finely shredded lettuce or watercress leaves, Optional. Place
1/2 cup of the vegetable stock in a Dutch oven or 3 1/2 - 5 qt saucepan and
bring to a boil. Add onion, garlic, and gignger; simmer for 3 minutes. Stir
in remaining stock and soy sauce. Cover pot and bring to a gentle boil. Add
remaining ingredients. Test for doneness: noodles should be softened;
vegetables should remain crisp/tender. Timing - about 8 minutes. Top each
serving with one of the garnishes. VARIATIONS: - substitute 1 c cooked
brown rice for the buckwheat noodles - substitute or add other vegetables
such as chopped green peppers, chopped water chestnut, chopped jicama root,
shredded spinach, chopped celery, or bamboo shoots. ~ to shorten prep time,
use only 2 vegetables- onion and peas - for a "hotter" soup, subst. 1/2-1 t
dry crushed red pepper - stir in 1 t toasted Sesame Oil or 1/2 t Chinese
hot oil just before serving ~ for additional protein and flavor, stir Egg
Threads into soup just before serving EGG THREADS: In a small skillet, heat
a little margarine. When it begins to bubble, add 1 egg beaten with a
little cold water. Tilt the pan so the yolk mixture coats it in a thin
layer, the thinner the better. When the egg is lightly cooked, turn it out
onto a cutting board. Slice it into very thin strips with a sharp knife.
(makes about 1/3 cup)
