Glass noodles soup 冬粉汤


This is a bowl of humble and old fashioned noodles soup that we like, no luxury ingredients are added. We especially love to add Tong Choy (a kind of preserved vegetable) in this noodles soup...

I enjoy glass noodle more than beehoon and this kinda clear ikan bilis soup is my top favourite soup.

Soy bean.... is it the white-color bean ppl used in dumpling making?

Elin said...

Sonia...this looks good. I love glass noodles in soup or fried . It really taste better than the normal beehoon :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Yvonne, no, this is the soy bean use to make soy milk..

This is my kind of comfort food at home, u remind me of mum's cooking.

Small Kucing said...

ya, adding tong choy makes the soup taste much nicer :)

anne said...

Sonia , I love your homemade stock ! I've never made homemade stock before and I usually use canned broth or chicken powder to flavor the soup tsk ! The noodles looks so appetizing and scrumptious ! I also love to add that preserved veggie ;D Yummy post as always !

Mel said...

"Tong Fun" is one of my favourite noodles. A simple noodles soup is just healthy and appetizing. Tong Choy in the soup makes alot of difference in the taste, right?

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

A simple dish like this looks so special when it was you cooked them! I seldom make noodle soup at home as I don't know how to cook a pot of soup that tastes sweet naturally! Looks like I need to use soy bean? Interesting!

This is TOTALLY my kind of soup! I love the preserved veggies you put in. Fish balls and fish cakes are my favorite and I can warm up my body. In that sense, this is better than oily ramen! =)

This is such a classic homely food! We love it too. Thank you for the suggestion of adding the tong choi, as I usually put in 雪菜, now I could have an alternative :)

never heard of adding soy bean n wonder how is the taste?

ping said...

Your soup certainly doesn't look humble. I love this soup. And it's funny how I like the Tong Choy with glass noodles but not with any other noodles. I'm probably strange :)

noobcook said...

I really love 冬粉汤 very much, your home-cooked version looks so good!

I like to eat this, but sigh, one bowl is never enough cos glass noodles are not filling.
And I like mine with lots of bird's eye chilli, syiok!

tigerfish said...

yes, often when I think of Tung Hoon Soup, I think of fishballs and Tong Choy. But I never like Tong Choy, don't know why.

Honey Bee Sweets said...

This is such a comforting meal! Whether it's glass noodle or vermencelli, I love it all. Yes yes, the bird chilli makes it even more yum!

May i ask what kind of onions did you use? red, yellow? Did you chop or dice? thanks

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

I use red onion, just cut into few pieces, Once done, discard all stock ingredients and just use the stock only.
