Prep Time: 30min | Cook Time: 40min

  1. Begin by peeling the potatoes, reserve the peels and pass the potatoes through a vegetable spiralizer to create vegetable noodles. Submerge the noodles in cold water to remove the excess starch and set aside.
  2. Toss the peels in the olive oil and season with the kosher salt and black pepper. Place the peels on a baking sheet and bake the skins at 375 F for 8-10 minutes until they are golden brown.  Allow the roasted skins to cool slightly.
  3. To make the broth, combine the roasted potato peels with the vegetable broth, garlic, onion, berries, star anise and cloves in a large pot. Heat over medium high heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes.  Remove the spices and the onion and discard.  Whisk in the potato flakes and transfer the broth to a blender and puree until smooth.  Allow the broth to sit for 5-10 minutes and strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer to remove any large particles.  Return the broth to the stove and keep hot until ready to use.
  4. To cook the potato noodles, heat a large pot of water over high heat. When the water is boiling at a pinch of salt and add in the noodles.  Cook the noodles for 12-15 minutes or until they are just tender.  Strain the noodles and shock in cold water to stop the cooking process.  Strain them again and set aside until ready to build the noodle bowls.
  5. To make the cabbage, heat the butter in the medium pot over medium high heat. Add the cabbage and carrots and cook until slightly wilted.  Add the vinegar, sugar, water and mustard seeds.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add the salt, pepper and parsley, remove from the heat and assemble the noodle bowls.
  6. To assemble, bring the broth to a simmer, submerge the potato noodles in the broth for about a minute to warm them through. Divide the noodles amongst however many bowls you wish to serve.  Top with the cabbage, sliced corned beef, Green Onion and chopped dill.  Ladle the hot broth over the noodles, cabbage and beef.  Serve right away and enjoy.
