Instructions

  1. Broth: In a medium stock pot, add the mushrooms, chicken stock, ground ginger, garlic cloves and green onions. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the linguine noodles or udon noodles according to package instructions. Set aside and keep warm when cooked.
  3. After the broth has simmered for 10 minutes, drain broth and reserve. Reserve vegetables as well. Set both aside.
  4. Soup: In the same stock pot, heat over medium heat. Add the olive oil. Add the carrots, green onions, jalapeno, garlic clove, ginger, pepper and salt. Cook for 5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Add the white wine, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add the broth and reserved vegetables back in, along with the chicken, soy sauce and honey. Cook until heated, 5 - 7 minutes. Right before serving, add the napa cabbage and cook for 30 seconds.
