  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For the broth:

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 32 oz (4 cups) chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce see example
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce see example
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

To assemble the soup:

  • 3 cups shiratake noodles, drained and rinsed see example
  • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1/4 cup radish sticks
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 lime wedges

Instructions

For the meatballs:

  1. Combine all of the meatballs in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Form into 24 bite-sized meatballs and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 12 minutes or until cooked through.

For the broth:

  1. In a medium saucepan heat the sesame oil and add the minced garlic and ginger. Cook for about 1 minute or until fragrant and sizzling. Add the chicken broth, water, soy sauce, fish sauce, red pepper flakes, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for at least 10 minutes. Strain the broth to remove the solids and add back to the pan. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference. Bring to a boil right before serving.

To assemble the soup:

  1. Place about 1/2 cup shiratake noodles in a soup bowl. Top with four meatballs, a handful of cabbage, and a pinch of radish, carrot, scallions, and cilantro. Ladle about 1 cup of very HOT broth into the bowl. Wait about 2 minutes for the ingredients to heat through, squeeze a lime wedge over it and serve.
