Ingredient: sliced shallots

Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup

Recipe submitted by Lisa of Good on Paper. We love her Instagram feed too, check it out!

When it comes to comfort food, my go-to is a big bowl of soupy noodles. Whether it’s ramen, soba, pho, or chow fun noodles in chicken broth, I will never turn down a giant bowl of noodles swimming in hot broth. It’s kind of crazy, but I have been making this super simple Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup since 2001. I found it in one of my Cooking Light magazines years ago and it’s been a staple in our house ever since. It’s so simple (throw everything into a big pot, boil the noodles, put the two together), yet surprisingly complex in flavor.

I don't always have every topping on hand, so I love that you could doctor it up however you like and it's always yummy -- add spinach and fried shallots, or baby kale and bean sprouts, or jalapeños and thai basil . My whole family loves this dish, especially if it's cold outside (hello, east coast friends!) or if someone is sick. As Theo would say, "More Thoop Peas!"
