Ginger Spice Broth & Buckwheat Noodle Soup
What is it about this funny lookin' root that makes me so completely happy. The simple pure smell of ginger instantly lifts my mood andI love it when my hands still smell of ginger for the rest of the day.
This soup is filling, warms the soul and will help cure anything that ails you. Maybe it's the buckwheat noodles, maybe it's the earthy shiitake mushrooms but my guess is that it's the gorgeous ginger broth. Divine.

1 thumb size chunk of fresh ginger - peeled, zested
2tbsp liquid aminos
2 garlic cloves - minced
1. Boil buckwheat noodles in lightly salted water until tender. strain and run over cold water to stop from cooking. Put desired noodle amount in each bowl ( I find that one pack of soba noodles nicely feeds two fatty's like me.)

3. Let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
4. Pour broth over noodles and serve immediately.
