Recipe: Gingery chicken noodle soup

Dietitian's tip: To make this vegetarian, substitute cubes of extra-firm tofu for the chicken and use vegetable stock.

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces dried soba noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1 cup plain soy milk (soya milk)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (fresh coriander)

Directions

Bring a saucepan 3/4 full of water to a boil, add the noodles and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside until needed.

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the ginger and carrot and saute for 1 minute. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds; don't let the garlic brown. Add the stock and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Add the chicken and edamame and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked and the edamame are tender, about 4 minutes. Add the soba noodles and soy milk and cook until heated through; don't let boil.

Remove pan from the heat and stir in the cilantro. Ladle soup into warmed individual bowls and serve immediately.
