Vegetarian Hot Pot
Quick to prepare, this Asian-style noodle soup has all the makings of a one-pot meal. To punch up the heat, add a dab of chile-garlic sauce.

Absolutely love this soup. You won't miss the meat. Frequently add siracha and/or chilli sauce cause we love our food spicy.
This is a good recipe, it just needs some tweaking to make it great. The biggest improvement for me was adding a tablespoon of miso to the broth. If you do this you should also add two cups of water. This gives a better ratio of broth-to-solids and adds some great flavor from the miso. Also, I would use Soba noodes and add them at the end. You don't want to overcook the noodes!
Also, it should be noted that "hot pots" or "noodle bowls" are a one off recipe. You should only cook the amount you're going to eat. Noodles don't store well in liquid.
What I do is cook a large portion leaving out the noodles. This way I can quickly heat up one serving cooking the noodles as needed and avoiding soggy noodles.
This soup is delicious and easy to make! I used vegetable broth and kale rather than bok choy. I love someone's suggestion to drizzle chili oil on it - I'll be doing that tonight.
Thanks for this recipe. I love hot pots but can't always afford to go out to eat. I used vegetable broth because I am vegan, and today I added miso and nutritional yeast to my bowl at the end to fortify and yummify it even more! The best part? I now have a delicious and nutritious replacement for those crappy, MSG-filled, commercial ramen noodles that my son likes to take in his school lunches. He can take this instead, and heat it up at school.
