A quick soup can save the day when you do not know what to cook and have no time to do the groceries. Usually I always have at least noodles, bouillon powder, carrots and eggs at home, and that already makes a basic soup. Add whatever you find in the fridge plus spices, and there you go - a warm soup is on the table!
ACTIVE: 1 min
PASSIVE: 10 min
1 liter water
Bouillon powder (to make 1 litre bouillon)
250 g rice noodles
2 table spoons soy sauce
2 large carrots
3-4 cm leek
Spices: handful of coriander, few thai basil leaves, lemon grass, chili… dried (add to bouillon) or fresh (sprinkle on ready soup)
Optional: 200 g tofu or thinly sliced beef, avocado
Boil the eggs, slice carrots and leek, chop coriander.
Prepare the rice noodles as instructed (usually pour boiling water over noodles and leave for 3 minutes, then rinse with cold water).
Heat 1 litre water in a pot, add dried spices and bouillon, through in carrot slices and let boil for 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce and tofu or meat (if meat, must be sliced very thinly) and leave standing as you prepare the servings.
Prepare the servings: place 1/4 of noodles in a bowl, add 2,5 dl bouillon with carrot pieces, sprinkle with leek and coriander (plus other fresh herbs) and add a halved egg on top.
