Miso noodle broth with pak choi

Soup Serves 2 15 min
As the name may hint at pak choi is a perfect companion to Asian and Oriental flavours. This is Pak Choi in its natural habitat. The leaves wilt well in the fashion of spinach or chard but the real character comes from the succulent crunch of the just cooked stalks. Don't shy away from using it in a more prosaic way, simply steamed or wilted as a side dish. You can lengthen this into a full meal by adding some sliced chicken breast or cubed tofu. If you like some heat to your food try adding some finely sliced red chilli along with the onions.

  • 500ml stock
  • 2cm ginger, peeled and finely sliced
