Taro and rice vermicelli noodle soup

Taro and rice vermicelli noodle soup

This morning i was tried to search this recipe in my blog list, i seen in a Chinese blog before but i couldn't recall which blog. Bakeling was laughing at me while I msn with her. She said who asked you to list so many blogs in the blog list, hahaha..Anyway, i tried to recall the recipe and create this noodle soup and serve for dinner tonight! This is quite an old fashion of noodle soup, last time our Ah Mah (grandmother) like to cook this noodle soup. Anyway, this noodle soup was yummy!



Taro and rice vermicelli noodle soup



I serve this noodle with a new type of veggi, it was strongly recommended by veggie store owner. The name of this veggi is call Green Dragon leaf, it taste quite similar to leek and it was good. You may replaced with spring onion or coriander leaves..

P/s I'd put up the piping of butter cream rosette for you. Hope you'll like it.

travellingfoodies said...

what a traditional dish... I remember eating this type of laksa beehoon soup with fish and yam slices when I was young. But then hawkers started to omit the yam. Thanks for refreshing the memory :)

I just cooked green dragon vegetable tonight too. One bundle was not much, reduced to a small plate only.
I guess this is a Hokkien dish right? Cos my grandaunt never cooked this. Looks so delish!

julie said...
