Thai noodles are a classic and often considered a staple of any dish.
They can be prepared in a variety of ways, but one of my favourite ways to make a Thai noodles is to use a broth made from the ground up veggies and meat.
It’s a lot healthier than using a traditional noodle broth, which contains a lot of preservatives and is a source of hormone-blocking chemicals.
You can make this noodle soup using a stock base like soy sauce, cornstarch or rice vinegar, but I love making it with vegetable broth.
For a vegetarian version, you can also use soy sauce or vegetable stock as well, but you may need to season the noodles with salt and pepper.
This recipe uses vegan stock, but feel free to experiment with other vegan options if you want.
