Vegetable Noodle Soup

noddle soup final 1

A soup made with a variety of vegetables, sautéed with butter and then simmered in water for a long time. And you have a flavourful broth.

Now boil some rice noodles or any other you like and add to the broth.

Go simple with the seasoning with basic salt, pepper and chilli flakes or experiment with some sweet thai basil leaves, chives, Tabasco sauce, sweet and spicy sauce or even some lemongrass sauce.

The end result is a delicious soup perfect for a cool rainy day.
