For lack of a better name, this is what I'm calling it. Our family LOVES Hop Sing's (0f Folsom California) vegetable chow mein. My mom recently invented this soup recipe which is very similar, but a little more healthy and perfect for a cold day!
6 cups of vegetable broth
1 package soba noodles (usually near the produce, buy them raw and fresh)
1 T canola oil
2 large carrots, coarsely chopped
3 stalks of celery, coarsely chopped
1 white onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup bean sprouts
2 cups diced bok choy
2-3 stalks of green onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 T Tamari soy sauce
Add oil to large sauce pan and heat, saute onion, garlic, celery, and carrots until translucent. Salt and pepper to taste. Add broth, bring to a boil. Cook noodles in mixture according to package directions. After noodles have cooked fully, turn down the heat to a simmer. Add peas, bean sprouts, bok choy, more salt and pepper (if necessary), red pepper flakes, and cook five more minutes.
Serve in bowls and garnish with chopped green onion and soy sauce. Enjoy!
