Ginger-scallion soup with zucchini noodles



Step 1

In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and ½ cup of the scallion and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Mix in the ginger and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 1 minute more.

Step 2

Add broth, shiitake, tamari, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until shiitake are just tender, 5 minutes.

Step 3

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Stir into the soup. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in the spiralized zucchini and ¼ teaspoon of the sesame oil. Let sit 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the remaining scallion, cilantro, sesame seeds, and more sesame oil, if desired.
