    1      Cup           Sliced Mushrooms (3 oz)
      1/2  Cup           Peas
    2      Ounces        Buckwheat Noodles (1/2 cup)
      1/2  Pound         Firm Tofu, cut in 1/2 cubes
      1/4  Cup           Watercress leaves
 
 GARNISH: blanched peapods, thin scallion slices, celery leaves, toasted sesame
seeds, finely shredded lettuce or watercress leaves, Optional.	Place 1/2 cup of
the vegetable stock in a Dutch oven or 3 1/2 - 5 qt saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add onion, garlic, and gignger; simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in remaining stock and
soy sauce.
 Cover pot and bring to a gentle boil. Add remaining ingredients.  Test for
doneness: noodles should be softened; vegetables should remain crisp/tender.
Timing - about 8 minutes. Top each serving with one of the garnishes. VARIATIONS:
- substitute 1 c cooked brown rice for the buckwheat noodles peppers, chopped
water chestnut, chopped jicama root, shredded spinach, chopped celery, or bamboo
shoots. EGG THREADS:
 In a small skillet, heat a little margarine. When it begins to bubble, add 1 egg
beaten with a little cold water. Tilt the pan so the yolk mixture coats it in a
thin layer, the thinner the better. When the egg is lightly cooked, turn it out
onto a cutting board. Slice it into very thin strips with a sharp knife. (makes
about 1/3 cup)
