  1. In a medium saucepan, heat stock to a simmer.  Stir in the miso and soy.  Steep the ginger and a few slices of the jalapeno in the broth for 5 minutes and then strain if desired. If you like spicy food, simply leave them in.
  2. Separately, in a medium-sized pot, boil rice noodles until still al dente.  Transfer noodles to bowls.
  3. Garnish noodles with chopped vegetables and cilantro leaves.
  4. Bring broth to a boil and pour directly over the noodles. The boiling broth will lightly cook the vegetables. (see Chef Tips)

Chef Tips

Rice sticks cook very quickly. If you’re worried about overcooking them, soak them in boiling water until they are just al dente, and let them finish in the soup.
If you are on an anti microbial diet, cook the vegetables for 2-3 minutes in a little of the broth before adding them to the noodles.
