Comforting Coconut Rice Noodle Soup

Say hello to today’s Comforting Coconut Rice Noodle Soup. This chilly weather is the perfect excuse to make a broth based soup to help keep you warm and satisfied throughout these colder months. Not used to making soups at home? No worries! This one is super easy. 

Comforting Coconut Rice Noodle Soup

Canned soups are often laden with sodium, which can contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. The recommended intake is 2300 mg per day. Just one cup of many canned soups can have up to 1000 mg of sodium. Homemade soup can reduce sodium intake and (usually) tastes better anyways. Any rice noodle fans? I absolutely love how tender they are when cooked, and their pair well with so many dishes. We used pureed white beans to thicken up the soup broth (and add in some extra protein!) 

Okay, let’s get this soup started. In a pan, heat the oil and add the onions, garlic & ginger. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, and then add 1 tablespoon of the chili paste, the beans, and sauté for another couple of minutes. Add all ingredients from the pan into a blender or food processor with the white rice vinegar, and process into a paste. Set aside. In a pot, bring the vegetable broth & coconut milk to a boil. Then add the other tablespoon of chili paste and the blended bean mixture. Stir well with a spoon, until you have a consistent broth. Then add the rice noodles. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until tender. Enjoy with your favorite chopped leafy greens + optional toppings!

If you leave the soup out for long, the rice noodles will soak up the broth and the noodles will harden. Simply add some water, reheat, stir until noodles are soft again, and enjoy!
