Similar to a Vietnamese pho rice noodle soup, red curry vermicelli noodle soup packs big flavor and a bit of heat. The crisp raw vegetables help cool things down. —Monnie Norasing, Mansfield, Texas

"We love this soup!"

MY REVIEW

"This soup was delicious! The cooking down of the coconut milk yielded very rich flavor. I also added a bag of frozen Asian vegetables (found at Costco) and about 1 tbsp of fresh grated ginger. The family loved it and there wer no leftovers. This would also be great with shrimp. Thank you Monnie for this wonderful recipe."

"I've made this soup several times for my family and they love it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 6, 2014

"AMAZING! I made this as an alternative to the usual chicken soup when my husband was sick and I think the spiciness (which wasn't too much at all) helped with the congestion some. I left out the cilantro and forgot about the basil, used fish sauce instead of soy, and used a "rainbow slaw" bagged mix to cut down the prep. A friend of mine said he's going to try it with crab or shrimp instead of chicken and I think I'll try that next time because it sounds like it would be very tasty. An instant winner here."

"This was absolutely delicious. I only did 1/4C of the curry paste and that was still pretty hot for my midwest tastebuds! I would probably cut it back a bit more next time. Great soup!"
