Something green always beats the winter blues. This classic Vietnamese noodle soup, starring rice noodles and chik’n strips, may bring just the lift you need. It’s topped with green bok choy and basil leaves. And the delicious flavor comes from the stick cinnamon and star anise simmered in the broth.
1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, in Dutch oven combine broth, soy sauce, cinnamon, ginger slices and star anise. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.
