A bowl of broth or soup graced the dining table at every meal when I was growing up. It can be an elaborate double boiled number with expensive ingredients or just a very simple one using the freshest vegetables from the garden and this clean tasting broth is a good example of the later.
Dried shrimps are usually used instead of the preserved radish, however this is a version preferred during the 1st and 15th day of the month (lunar calander) when only vegetarian meals are served.
If you are after something a little more challenging come back for massaman beef next, meanwhile get your pestle and mortar out and have some homemade curry paste ready!

a small bunch of mung bean noodles
2 free range eggs
