From northern Thailand, a noodle soup with an amazing mix of flavor and texture. My mom made this for me recently, and I fell in love with it. It is a variation on a recipe about street food she found in her local paper. It is quite flavorful, so if you prefer a less spicy dish, reduce the amount of spices.
Fabulous holiday or winter soup. The addition of pears adds a different slant. When serving, garnish with a swirl of cream. Can be made up to two days ahead of time.
This is a ridiculously easy soup, especially since it cooks in a slow cooker! When it’s been simmering all day, you come home to an amazing aroma and a fabulous meal for a cold winter day.
