Method

Soak dried shiitake mushrooms in 8 cups warm water for 20 minutes.

Heat a stockpot over medium heat. 

Place onions in the pot and cook, stirring as needed, until browned, about 5 minutes. 

Add mushrooms and their soaking liquid, jalapeño, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, anise, cloves and salt. 

Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until flavorful, about 25 minutes. 

Strain into a clean pot and discard solids. 

Keep broth warm over low heat. 

While broth is simmering, cook noodles according to package instructions. 

Arrange garnishes on a large platter or divide between individual plates. 

Portion noodles in large bowls and ladle broth over the top. 

Add garnishes to taste and serve.
