1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
½ inch ginger
peeled and freshly minced
1 each scallions, spring or green onions
¼ cup cilantro
freshly chopped, thin stems and leaves separated
2 each mushrooms, button
or cremini, sliced, about 1 cup
2 each celery stalks
halved lengthwise and sliced
1 medium carrots
or 2 small ones, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 medium potatoes
peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
or as needed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon hot chili pepper oil
or as needed, optional
4 cups stock
vegetable or any broth, or water
4 ounces pasta, penne
or any pasta or noodles you prefer, whole wheat
½ tablespoon rice vinegar


In a large saucepan or a dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot.

Add the garlic, ginger, scallions, and thin cilantro stems, stirring constantly, and cook for about 40 seconds until very fragrant.

Add the mushrooms, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft, and partially browned.

Add the celeries, carrots, and potatoes, and cook for about 2 minutes.

Add the soy sauce, sesame oil and hot chili oil if using, stirring often, and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until heated through and vegetables just start to become tender.

Pour the broth or water into the saucepan, bring to a boil.

Add the pasta in, cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is done and most of the broth or water has been absorbed.

Stir once or twice, and check if it seems too dry, add a bit more broth or water to prevent the bottom from burning.

Stir in the cilantro leaves until well combined.

Serve warm with a light vegetable salad if needed.
