Chicken & Soba Noodle Broth

Method

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add the noodles and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, place 1 tablespoon ghee, onion, carrot, daikon and sweat (1 minute).  Add and whisk together the stock, 4 cups water, miso and ginger. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the miso is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes.

Add the seaweed and spinach and cook until slightly softened but still bright green about 1 minute. Add the green onions. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Using tongs, divide the noodles evenly among warmed bowls and then ladle in the soup. Serve immediately.
