FFwD: Vietnamese Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup


Soups are some of my favorite foods. I fix them all year round. They can be cold or hot, sweet or savory. You just can't go wrong with soup.

For the third recipe in this new group, we were to make Vietnamese Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup.


It had potential, and it did turn out to be quite delicious, with a lovely spicy undertone from the star anise, coriander seed, pepper corns, and dried red chilies. Pour in some homemade chicken stock and some coconut milk and you're all set.



I'm not a fan of fish sauce, but I didn't eliminate it entirely. A few drops were enough. It melded into the other flavors, so all was well.



The soup was even better the next day.


Stop by French Fridays with Dorie to see all the soup versions and find out what's on the recipe list for November.
