Good Luck Pork Noodle Soup

It’s thought to be good luck to serve pork on New Year’s Day, and we could all use a bit of good fortune going into 2022! Rather than a roast, which can be quite time consuming, I like to make this quick pork noodle soup, which comes together in 30 minutes start to finish. Nourishing, hydrating (in case you had a bit too much champagne on New Year’s Eve) and delicious, it’s the perfect dish to serve to the ones you love as you kick off a new year together.
