This Chinese-inspired soup is fast and flavorful. The rice noodles thicken the broth before your eyes.

I love making soups, and this one is especially delicious.

This time I used carrots and broccoli, but feel free to use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. Just make sure you chop everything before you start cooking, or else things will get hectic in the kitchen!
