This comforting soup, made with supermarket staples and fragrant with ginger, is as easy—and almost as fast—to whip up as ordering takeout. Slideshow: Fast Soup Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Combine the chicken broth, ginger and garlic in a medium soup pot and bring to simmer over moderate heat. Reduce heat to moderately low and continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Discard the ginger and garlic.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, cook the soba noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water until al dente, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Shake out the excess water and set aside.

Step 3    

Stir the soy sauce into the broth; taste and add a little more if needed. Add the tofu and cabbage and simmer until the cabbage is crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 4    

Stir in the peas and soba noodles and simmer until heated through. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the sliced scallions.
