Since I bought those lovely noodles from Bamboodles Restaurant - San Gabriel, I couldn't let them go to waste. With fresh noodles, the rest of the ingredients take a backseat so the noodles can really shine.
This soup was inspired by the pork and Szechuan pickles at Luscious Dumplings, Inc. - San Gabriel. I didn't have any pork on hand so I substituted with ground turkey instead. Chopped up some Chinese pickled mustard greens and I was good to go.
Use any type of noodle you want. You could even use this method to doctor up packaged ramen noodles.
Chinese Noodle Soup with Ground Turkey and Pickled Mustard Greens
For about 2 servings, you'll need:
If you have the time and pork bones, make Canh (Vietnamese Soup Broth), otherwise just make a quick broth per the directions below.
8 oz package of wheat or ramen noodles
1/4 lb ground turkey or ground pork
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 cup Chinese pickled mustard greens, thinly sliced
In a pot on medium-high heat, saute the 1/4 lb ground turkey with 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp soy sauce. When the turkey meat is cooked, add about 4 cups water and let simmer. Taste and season if necessary.
Boil the noodles. Drain and set aside.
Thinly slice the pickled mustard greens.
Check on the broth and if it is to your liking, prepare the bowls. Add the noodles into the bowls. Ladle broth and ground turkey. Top off with pickled mustard greens.
A super quick dinner in minutes.
