Now that we are finally getting some consistently cold and rainy days here I've started craving big steaming bowls of soup, preferably spicy. About a month ago (when it was still unseasonably warm in northern California) the NY Times ran an article about Southeast Asian soups that caught my eye. Now that winter is actually upon us I am all geared up to start busting out some of these recipes. Today I made their version of Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup (Curry Mee) which really hit the spot–hearty, silky (from the coconut milk), crunchy and spicy. Great taste. Great mouthfeel. Very warming and nourishing.
Soups like these almost make dreary grey days enjoyable!
