Asian Hot Pot

Real Simple FEBRUARY 2007

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time:25 Minutes
  • Other:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 3.75-ounce package cellophane (bean thread) or thin rice noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces shiitake or other mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thinly sliced
  • 6 cups vegetable or low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce or hot pepper sauce to taste (optional)
  • 4 scallions (green and white parts), thinly sliced
  • 4 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces

Preparation

Prepare the noodles according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add the broth, soy sauce, ginger, and chili sauce (if using) and combine. Bring to a boil. Add the scallions, carrots, and green beans. Simmer until the vegetables are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.

Drain the noodles and cut into 3-inch lengths. Divide the noodles among individual bowls and ladle the soup over the top.

Tip: You can find cellophane and rice noodles in the Asian-food aisle of most supermarkets. If you prefer a more substantial soup, substitute 8 ounces of angel-hair pasta or whole-wheat spaghetti, breaking the strands into pieces before cooking.
