Ginger Pork Noodle Soup

There’s nothing like a noodle soup for dinner. This ginger pork version is big on Chinese and Southeast Asian flavors, with crisp fresh ginger and some funk from the fish sauce. There’s also a little tamari to add sweetness and umami (and is the perfect gluten free alternative to soy sauce) that really brings out the flavor of our heritage breed pork. Dish it out into biggest soup bowls you have, and add some chilli or sambal on the side, then top it all off with a bright green lime wedge for squeezing. And if you need a little more veggie power, throw in some baby bok choy at the end.
