Makes 2 large bowls, or enough for one super hungry lady

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium white onion, sliced
1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
4-5 mushrooms, sliced
12 ounces chicken stock
juice of one lime
1 teaspoon of siracha (or more or less depending on your desired spice factor)
1 bundle of udon noodles

For serving: purple and green cabbage, sliced carrots, cilantro and lime wedges

In the bottom of a large soup pot, saute the garlic, ginger and onions with the olive and sesame oil. Let cook for a minute or two and add the mushrooms or whatever other vegetables you are using. Cook until the onions soften. Add the chicken stock, the juice of one lime and the siracha. Add the noodles and bring to a boil. Cook for about 4 to 5 more minutes or until the noodles have fully cooked.

In the meantime prepare your plate o’ toppings. Slice up a lime, some carrots, green and purple cabbage, and cilantro. Ladle soup into bowls, and serve with the fixings.
