Gently heat some coconut oil in a heavy bottom pan. Once to oil is melted add your finely sliced onions. The onions need to cook slowly to draw out their natural flavour, this creates the base for your soup.As the onions become translucent grate in your ginger & turmeric (I keep both in the freezer, that way they’re always fresh and can be grated without being peeled)

At this stage add your sliced mushrooms. Stir the two together & leave them to cook gently on a low heat for ten minutes. Once they have cooked down & become nice and sticky turn up the heat for two minutes. This will add to the rich carmalised flavour of the broth.

Turn down the heat again and add one tablespoon of white wine vinegar & two tablespoons of tamari. Cook out for a minute and then add your stock.

Once the stock comes to the boil throw in the noodles and the shredded kale. Boil for approximately five minutes (or until the noodles are cooked through)

Serve with a few drops of sesame oil to season.
