Ingredients

Soup

  • 2-4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 carrots, sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 ounce can coconut milk
  • Salt, to tate

  • 12 ounces flat rice noodles

Serving

  • Fresh mint
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges
Directions
1
In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Add the mushrooms and cook until slightly colored. Remove from the pot.
2
Add another drizzle of oil, along with the onions, carrots and scallions to the pot and sauté until aromatic and nearly translucent, 5 minutes.
