Watch how to make it here
To understand Vietnam’s culture and people, you have to look at their soup. Soup is a staple in Vietnamese cuisine that is enjoyed throughout one’s meal and in a way, cleanses the palate between bites of all the other entrees. This soup is delicious and quick to make!
A few notes:
- Vietnamese soups have a light broth. It is usually not blended up and you can taste/bite into the vegetables.
- Chayote and kabocha can be found in most grocery stores. To be sure, head to your nearest Asian grocery store and you can find it there.
- Vegan fish sauce is also found in Asian grocery stores. If it’s not available in your area, feel free to use a bit more fish sauce.
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
