I enjoyed the simplicity of this recipe, and turned out great. I didn't use any noodles...figure they are just extra, unnecessary calories. I added sriracha and lime juice, and garnished with cilantro which was a really nice touch. I had a very small amount of shrimp that I threw in as well and next time I will add more! the flavors worked so well with the shrimp.
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.

This dish is just about perfect! I so love all the tastes. Suggest you make exactly as written the first time, then see if you want any changes. I think it's perfect exactly as written. Love it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
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.
