Retains the comfort qualities of good ol’ Chicken Noodle Soup, but with the added suggestion of creamy, slightly exotic, coconutty flavor. The Habanero chili pepper adds a really nice jolt of heat that cuts through the rich coconutty creaminess. Serves 6

  • 1 onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 small habanero chili, thinly sliced (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 4-6 oz. rice noodles
