This spicy Thai veggie noodle soup is the perfect cozy food with a kick!
Last week we had a super gloomy and rainy day here. It also happened to be the day after Robbie got his wisdom teeth out. I was trying to think of what to make us for dinner, and I was like soup – a no brainer! I was craving something with Asian flavors, spicy, lots of veggie and meat-less! This recipe crosses off all of the boxes. It was some serious comfort food. You can really add whatever veggies you desire. We did chopped bell pepper, diced jalapeno, and mushrooms. Bok choy, cabbage, carrots, zucchini, kale – really whatever you’re craving, throw it in!
For the noodles, I got a box of Annie Chun’s Maifun brown rice noodles at Whole Foods. They’re non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% whole grain. They were also delicious and super easy to make! You just soak the noodles in hot water for 8 minutes, drain, then set aside until ready to use! Easy enough right? I’m excited to make more recipes using Annie Chun’s healthier noodle options.Print
