Recipe: Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup 
Serves 8
3 ounces dried soba noodles                 
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped                                          
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 cups chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped
1 cup plain soy milk (soya milk) *optional
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (fresh coriander)
Bring a saucepan 3/4 full of water to a boil, add the noodles and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside until needed.
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the ginger and carrot and sauté for 1 minute. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds; don't let the garlic brown. Add the stock and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Add the chicken and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked for about 4 minutes. Add the soba noodles and soy milk and cook until heated through; don't let boil.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro. Place into individual bowls and serve immediately.
