Ingredient IQ

Sambal oelek is one of our favorite tools to bring heat and flavor to a dish. Sambal is an Indonesian term for a sauce made with chiles, and oelek refers to the mortar and pestle traditionally used to make it. We recommend stirring in one-third for mild heat, two-thirds for medium, and all of it if you like things super spicy.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the glass noodles

Bring a medium [large] sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the glass noodles and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
While the noodles cook, prepare the soup.

2

Prep the ingredients; cook the soup

  • Trim the ends from the radishes; cut the radishes into quarters.
  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry.
  • Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a medium [large] sauce pot, combine the radishes, vegetable broth, tomato-ginger soup base, and 2 cups [4 cups] water, season with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the shrimp, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the radishes are tender and the shrimp are firm and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for regular shrimp, 3 to 4 minutes for jumbo shrimp. Remove from the heat, stir in the arugula, and season to taste with lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Serve

Divide the glass noodles between individual bowls. For each portion, ladle 1 cup soup over the noodles, plus more, if desired. Garnish with the cilantro and as much sambal oelek as you like and serve with the lime wedges.
