What’s the story behind this recipe? Well, winter is coming! Texas is known for extreme weather conditions. From sudden 20 degrees temperature drop to back high in 80s, sometimes all in one week. Two weeks back I was having cold and frosty smoothies, but during these wintery days I opt for hot and hearty food. This week, I was craving for super-hot & spicy noddle soup without having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen

≈ 1 Tbsp. oil (I used olive oil)

≈ 1 medium stick ginger – diced

≈ 2 garlic cloves – minced

Roughly Chopped Veggies & Tofu:

≈ 8-10 baby carrots (I always buy baby carrots over traditional long ones to save time)
