Rice noodles are extremely versatile. You can stuff them into spring rolls, sautée them for stir frys or, as this recipe proves, add them into soup for a deliciously filling meal! In addition to the noodles, this soup includes tofu, red onion, orange pepper, and green beans, although the veggies can be easily swapped. With just the broth, this soup is a clear and light noodle soup, however, a dollop of red curry paste and a swirl of coconut milk later, and it completely transforms into a creamy, comforting delight.
