When noodles are tender, remove noodles and carrots and stalks from cooking water with a slotted spoon; rinse in cold water , drain, and set aside. Cook asparagus TIPS in cooking water until crisp-tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.

Heat oil in a large pot. Add ginger and mushrooms; stir-fry over medium heat until mushrooms are soft and begin to weep, about 3 minutes. Add Vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
