Ingredients
• 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into ¼-inch strips
• 2 Tbsp / 30 ml low-sodium soy sauce
• 1 tsp / 5 ml fresh ginger, minced
• 1 clove garlic, passed through a garlic press
• 2 Tbsp / 30 ml rice wine vinegar
• 2 Tbsp / 30 ml toasted sesame oil
• 4 cups / 960 ml low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth (I used the sodium free broth)
• 1 package / 8 oz dry soba noodles or Asian noodles
• ½ cup / 120 ml frozen peas (I used frozen mixed veggies)
• 2 cups / 480 ml broccoli spears
• ¼ cup / 60 ml thinly sliced sweet red pepper
• 1 small carrot, peeled and grated
• 4 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
• 4 generous handfuls spinach
• ¼ cup / 60 ml unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)
Preparation
  1. Combine chicken, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar and toasted sesame oil in a small saucepan. Heat mixture on medium.
  2. Add broth and bring to a gentle boil. Continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink – at least 10 minutes.
  3. Add noodles, peas, broccoli and red pepper. Cook until broccoli turns bright green and is tender-crisp. Reduce heat and let sit, covered.
  4. Stir in carrot and green onion.
  5. When ready to serve, divide spinach leaves among four bowls at the bottom of each bowl. Ladle soup into each bowl, making sure to divide ingredients as evenly as possible. Garnish with peanuts (if using).
