Vegetarian Hot Pot

Winter 2004, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (47 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I added extra garlic (minced) to the broth, and we added raw peeled shrimp during the last step as we are not vegetarians. Better than expected! I have never had great luck cooking asian foods and this one will be a keeper! "

Needs some tweaking

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.

Delicious and easy vegetarian soup!

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.

Souper Soup!

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.

Easy to make, healthy, and so good!

I added more garlic, spice, and doubled the ramen noodles. I bet this recipe would be amazing with shrimp.
