Directions

  1. Bring stock to a roiling boil.
  2. Add spices to taste. For a hotpot style soup, use ginger, garlic, szechuan sauce or chili paste, and chili oil. For a darker, sweet-spicy taste, use ginger, garlic, five spice powder, sesame oil, and some extra soy sauce.
  3. Add noodles and cubed tofu, simmer a few minutes to allow flavors to blend and noodles to cook partway while you get vegetables together.
  4. Add all vegetables, excluding spinach.
  5. Simmer.
  6. Add spinach, simmer until just tender.
  7. Serve hot.
