Chicken Soba Soup
Easy to make, very tastey. Boil up some chicken stock and add some matchsticks of fresh ginger and then about 1 tsp of light miso paste. If you want a cheeky bit of spice then add some birds eye chillies - not too many though, unless you want your food to be with you only a short amount of time.
Oh, before you do all this marinate the chicken (thin strips) in light soy sauce, sesame oil and black pepper for as long as you want. Getting back to the soup, now your base is ready, add the chicken and some spring onions. Cook until the chicken is cooked all the way through (it should still be really juicey and soft inside if you haven't cooked it to death). Also, toast some sesame seeds (dry fry in a pan but cover with a lid cause they start trying to escape when it gets too hot). Add them in and anything else you want really.
Then just put into a big bowl (because you need to drink the sauce at some point) and eat it you piggies.
