Soba Noodles With Mushroom Broth is one of the most deeply flavored of my broth soup recipes. This light but warming broth soup is great any time of year, and especially during the spring and fall, when our bodies may lean towards less dense foods. Soba (buckwheat noodles) and carrots nourish the liver. Maitake mushrooms (Hen Of the Woods) are one of the most popular culinary mushrooms in Japanese cuisine, and have a rich, earthy, almost meaty flavor. They also happen to be very powerful medicinal mushrooms, and are used in oriental medicine as mineral rich immune enhancers and cancer fighters. If you cannot source maitakes, use shiitake mushrooms instead. The garlic, shallots, and ginger all give an extra boost to the immune system, too.
2 cups water (or the soaking water from the mushrooms if shiitakes are used)
1 package lotus root soba noodles
1 medium carrot (peeled and sliced on the bias)
1 cup scallions (chopped)
2 tablespoons tamari (or to taste)
Garnish: 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
Optional: Lime wedges and sambal on the side if a touch of heat is desired
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Heat oil in large pot over medium heat.
Add shallots, garlic ginger and maitake and sauté 3-4 minutes.
Add the dash, 2 cups water, and bring to a boil.
Add the soba noodles, stir, and bring to a boil again.
Reduce heat; and simmer 5 minutes.
Add the carrots and simmer 2 minutes.
Stir in the scallions and tamari.
Serve immediately, garnishing with cilantro leaves and lime wedges if desired. (The lime adds a touch of brightness to this earthy soup). A touch of samba adds the heat factor and can be stirred into the soup by anyone who wants it.
