BM #83 Week 2 Day 3 - 

For Day 3 of kid friendly soups and stews, here is a soy sauce-ginger based soup which my kids loved. The sweet potatoes and noodles in there was the main attraction for them. 

The simple soup came in handy as an after school snack on a snowy evening. The other adult wanted more ginger and more Sriracha while the little one who hates ginger finished off the soup grumbling about it but ladling all the sweet potatoes from the soup. The older one said it was a perfect balance for her. So I guess the ginger in the soup takes some 'getting used to', so to say.

The original recipe asked for Soba noodles but I had only Hakka noodles in my pantry so I just went ahead with those. I am not sure if the type of noodles changes the taste of the soup. This worked out fine for us.

Ingredients - 

Olive Oil 1 Tbsp
Onion, finely chopped 4 Tbsp
Ginger, grated 2 Tbsp (I used 1 Tbsp as I thought the little one cannot handle the spice)
Garlic, grated 1 tsp
4-5 cups of Vegetable broth or water
Soy Sauce 1 Tbsp
Salt as needed
Sriracha 1 Tbsp (more if needed)
Sweet Potatoes peeled and cubed 2 cups 
Noodles 1 small cake (I used Hakka noodles)
Lime/Lemon juice as needed
Toppings before serving - 
Bean Sprouts or julienned Carrots
Toasted Sesame Seeds

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated deep stock pot, add oil and saute the onions until they are golden brown.

Add in ginger and garlic and saute for a few seconds. Pour the 4 cups of vegetable stock/water.

Add soy sauce, Sriracha and salt and let the soup come to a rolling boil.

Gently slide in the cubed sweet potatoes and let them cook until they are fork tender.

Meanwhile cook the noodles separately and drain. Add the noodles into the simmering soup after the sweet potatoes are cooked.

Adjust the consistency of the soup and add more vegetable broth/water if needed. Adjust the flavors as needed.

Serve warm with the toppings to keep yourselves warm in this chilly weather.
