Before you start

Large saucepan | Stockpot | Grater | Immersion Blender | Powerful blender

Prepare the veggies

  • Trim and finely slice the leek
  • Trim, de-seed and finely slice the red chilli
  • Peel and grate the garlic and ginger
  • Trim, wash and roughly chop the the kale
  • Break the broccoli into florets and dispose of the stalk
  • Zest and juice the lemon
  • Break up the tofu
  • Prepare the stock

Start cooking

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat
  • Add the leek and cook, stirring for 2–3 minutes until tender
  • Add the red chilli, garlic, ginger and and stir for a further 2 minutes

Add the veggies and liquids

  • Pour the stock into the pan, bring it to the boil and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer
  • Add the broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes until tender
  • Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes (the liquid should be lukewarm)
  • Add the kale, spinach, tofu, lemon juice and zest, soy sauce and mirin to the pan and gently fold it into the liquid to wilt the leaves
  • When the leaves have shrunk in size by roughly half, use an immersion blender to blend the contents of the pan to a smooth, creamy consistency (we recommend transferring the soup to a high powered blender to finish the job and get the soup super smooth)
  • Transfer the soup back to the pot and bring to a gentle simmer
  • Taste the soup and season to perfection with salt and pepper and chilli flakes

For the noodles

  • Prepare half the soba noodles as instructed on the back of the packet
  • Have a pan of cold water ready to transfer the cooked noodles into so they don’t stick together
  • Layer the noodles and half the soup, one layer at a time so the noodles are well covered but don’t clump together
  • Transfer the remaining soup to an airtight container and place in the fridge for lunch later in the week
  • Prepare the remaining noodles on the day you eat the remaining soup
