4 cups homemade chicken broth or canned
3 large cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
Finely grated ginger, the size of a large walnut
1 Tsp Sambal or more to taste ( Sambal = hot sauce)
1.5 leeks sliced, white part only
1/4 chinese cabbage ( Napa ) sliced
1 T. Soy Sauce
.5 tsp toasted Sesame Oil
.5 T, Mirin
1 dried Thai Red Pepper Chili, seeds removed and chopped. Wear gloves!
2 serving of Soba Buckwheat Noodles or other Asian noodle of your choice.
Cilantro if you happen to have it on hand
I must confess that I threw everthing in to the pot except the noodles. I let all of the vegetables cook.
Cook the noodles separately, drain and place into 2 bowls. Add the broth and serve garnished with cilantro.
Adjust seasoning to your degree of spiciness. And stay warm.
