Noodle Soup

Having just spent a week in Hong Kong sampling all the wonderful sights and sounds of such a vibrant city and sampling some really excellent food one of the best meals I had was a simple noodle soup served after a Chinese New Year celebration meal at the home of a Hong Kong family.  It was simple yet full of flavour so I tried to recreate it upon my return.

1 ltr Chicken stock - fresh homemade would be better, but I used a stock cube
1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1 Star Anise
200g fresh egg noodles
Half a chinese leaf cabbage, sliced into chunks
3 Spring onions, sliced

Heat a little oil in a large pan and fry gently the spring onions.  Add the spice and star anise, then pour over the stock.  Heat through for a few minutes then add the noodles and cabbage, simmer for 3 minutes so the cabbage retains a little bite and serve.

Simple yet delicious.
