Thai and Laotian Noodle Soup (Khao Poon)

Thai and Laotian Noodle Soup (Khao Poon)

We ate this kind of soup in Laos and Thailand. It is staple food but it´s a dish we could eat in every time of the day. Khao poon is essentially a noodle soup made with whatever protein you desire, whether it may be chicken, fish, or pork. But our verion is with tofu. It´s also gluten free and 100 % vegan!
