Vegetarian hot and sour soup

Ingredients
 
  • 140g of noodles, dried wholewheat (or vegetable noodles for a low-carb affair)
  • rapeseed oil, or other neutral oil
  • 2 tbsp of ginger, grated
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of rice wine, preferably Shaohsing
  • 700ml of vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of rice vinegar
  • 1 handful of beansprouts
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 200g of tofu, firm, sliced into strips
  • carrots, courgettes, broccoli, seaweed, mushrooms, or any vegetables of your choice
 
Method
 
1
Cook the noodles according to the packet’s instructions. When finished, rinse under cold running water and drizzle a little oil over them to keep them from sticking together. Divide between two big bowls
 
2
In a soup pot, combine the ginger, red chilli, Shaohsing rice wine, vegetable stock, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Bring to a simmer
 
3
While the soup simmers, prepare your vegetables. I like to julienne my carrots and courgettes, but feel free to cut them to your preferred size and shape
 
4
Add the vegetables to the pot and let it come back to the simmer. Cook until the vegetables are tender (any quick-cooking vegetables, especially greens, should be added at the very end so they don’t overcook)
 
5
Stir in the bean sprouts, most of the spring onions and the tofu. Ladle the soup over the noodles. Serve garnished with spring onions
