Cooking time: 12 to 13 minutes


Rice sticks noodle (3 mm): 1/4 of the packet (cooked yield to 2 cups of noodle)

Water: 4 cups to cook in microwave

Cook the noodle first:

In a large microwave safe bowl , heat the water for about 4 minutes.

Add the rice stick noodle and let it soak for 25 minutes, if they re still not done after 25 min well it happened to me (I kept the noodle for another 2 min in microwave) - Came out perfect! Better not to soak as per recipe, just add in hot water and cook another 2 or more min!

Drain the noodle and keep aside.

Make the soup in microwave

In the same microwave bowl, add the stock and heat for 2 minutes.

Take it out and add the soy sauce, green & red chilis, lemon juice, salt and noodle keep for another 3 to 4 minutes, until they turn hot!

Take a serving bowl, add the noodle and soup, garnish with fried garlic, cilantro, green onion and bean sprout.


Preparing in stovetop

Boil the water and pour in rice stick noodle. Let it soak for 25 min.

Once it is soaked drain it. (don't worry if they re not fully done - u re going to cook with broth again)

Pour the Vegetable stock in a large pot, and heat up.

Add the soy sauce, chilis, lemon juice,salt and noodle.

Simmer the stove and cook for 10 min!

Heat a small pan with peanut oil, add the garlic and fry until they turn golden brown! Drain in paper towel!

Now serve the noodle in individual bowl, add the garnish ingredients and garlic! Enjoy your soup.

Enjoy this vegetarian noodle soup, It is a complete satisfying full meal for me!
