I just want to take a moment to rave about glass noodle soup. We just came back from a Thai restaurant - they have a buffet every Sunday so we go there occasionally so Bob can get buffet and I can get my favorites.

I always get glass noodle soup. It is just sooooo good!! Is this easy to make at home?

Does anybody else love this soup?

At this restaurant, I think it's a chicken broth base with a shrimp or two, the glass noodles of course, maybe lettuce, some carrots, and that might be it. I'm not sure of the spices though.

Glass Noodles are easy to make at home. You can buy Bean thread noodles in packets with a broth packet or in bulk packages. Often the bulk packages are in pink netting and very inexpensive. They will be labeled as Chinese vermicelli, rice noodles, or bean threads, or if from Thailand they are called woon sen.

They are available in similiar packages as Top Ramen in most Asian markets. Here is an easy to make at home Wunsen/Woonsen soup recipe:

If you buy the individual packets one packet will serve two as a first course or one as a lunch. You can add diced veggies such as mushrooms, onion, and protien such as lobster balls. I love the Thai lobster balls which when boiled in the soup broth prior to adding the noodles become very light and fluffy.

Many fish balls from China have a rubbery consistency which you may or may not "love".

These rice noodles are very popular in Thai salads as well like Yum Woon Sen Gai (Bean Thread Chicken Salad).

Hope you give this easy wonderful soup a try!
