Inspired by the upcoming Lunar New Year, this 30 minute meal is a spicy aromatic explosion bound to leave you optimistic for whatever the future has in store. Traditionally, the noodles  eaten during lunar new year celebrations are made extra long to symbolize longevity; the longer the noodle the better! Our take on longevity noodles comes together in a flash and yields a bowl packed with the textures of mushrooms, spinach, shrimp, and chicken showcased by a warming broth rich in spices like star anise, fennel, cinnamon, cloves, and Szechuan peppercorns. This dish quickly became a new favorite for us and we hope it brings you health and happiness in the year of the Tiger. May your year be filled with flavor!

Because this soup cooks so quickly, have all of your ingredients ready to go before you start to cook. You can make the omelet garnish ahead of time so it has a moment to cool before slicing into ribbons.

Chinese Five Spice is a delicious blend that contains all essential flavors for health and longevity. Pepper and fennel, star anise and cloves merge with spicy cinnamon to create a flavor wholly new. Happy New Year!
