One of the easiest Spicy Noodle soup recipe. It’s packed with fresh, bold, and fragrant flavors. It is the perfect blend of coconut, Trader Joe’s red curry sauce, spices, and rice noodles. It is a perfect comforting and filling quick soup on a cold day. It’s very similar to the Khow Suey, which is a Burmese Noodle Soup. You can check out that recipe by clicking the link.
