Sliced pork, Chinese broccoli, and soba noodle soup

Soba noodles are made from fiber-rich buckwheat flour, which keeps you full longer. If you can't find Chinese broccoli, use other leafy vegetables such as mustard greens.

Prep: 20 mins | Total Time: 30 mins | Servings: 4 | Yield: Makes 8 1/2 cups

  • 6 ounces soba noodles
  • 3 tablespoons toasted-sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 ounces Chinese broccoli (or other leafy greens), sliced on the bias, 1/2 inch thick
  • 12 ounces pork tenderloin, very thinly sliced across the grain (less than 1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Garnish: 1 red Thai chile, thinly sliced
  • Garnish: 1 lime, cut into wedges
  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles until al dente. Drain, and transfer to ice-water bath. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon oil.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a medium Dutch oven or a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook ginger and garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Add stock and water. Bring to a boil. Stir in Chinese broccoli, and simmer until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Stir in pork and soy sauce. Cook until pork is just cooked through, about 1 minute.
  5. Divide noodles and soup among 4 bowls. Garnish with chile and lime wedges. Serve immediately.
