Tried this recipe, but used the Chicken Pho base. Did not care for the flavor, so ditched it for regular chicken broth. I would not use the brown rice noodles again because they fell apart and turned to mush very rapidly. My modified recipe (not vegetarian, but YUM!): Chicken broth, asparagus, mushrooms, frozen peas, carrots, zucchini, thinly sliced smoked sausage, Woodside Thai Tofu (spicy and good!) Next time I would maybe use an Asian rice or cellophane noodles. Toppings: Chopped Mint, Cilantro, Green Onions, Serrano chiles. I would make this soup again, but with my modifications. It was like going to an Asian noodle restaurant. Thanks for the inspiration!
