5 1/4   cups   vegetable broth, or reduced-sodium chicken broth
4    1/4inch thick slices  fresh ginger, peeled
2      cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
2    teaspoons   canola oil
1 3/4   cups   shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, wiped clean and sliced (4 ounces)
1/4   teaspoon   crushed red pepper, or to taste
1      small bok choy, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, stems and greens separated
3 1/2   ounces   Chinese wheat noodles, or rice sticks (see Ingredient note)
1    14 ounce package  firm tofu, drained, patted dry and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1    cup   grated carrots, (2 large)
4 - 6    teaspoons   rice vinegar
2    teaspoons   reduced-sodium soy sauce
1    teaspoon   toasted sesame oil
1/4   cup   chopped scallions, for garnish
Combine broth, ginger and garlic in a Dutch oven; bring to a simmer. Simmer, partially covered, over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. Discard the ginger and garlic.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add bok choy stems; cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the mushroom mixture to the broth. Add noodles, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 3 minutes. Add bok choy greens and tofu; simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, vinegar to taste, soy sauce and sesame oil. Serve garnished with scallions.
Ingredient Note: Chinese wheat noodles and rice sticks (dried rice noodles) are quick-cooking and can be found in the Asian-food section of your supermarket.
