Flat Noodle Soup (Ho Fan 河粉湯)

We (Mishu and mommy) are feeling under the weather now.I think the culprit is our cold and hot weather that make us feeling lousy. Well,what can make us feel good and energizing beside cold and flu medicine? Some hot noodle soup or hot porridge? I still have 2 sheets of flat noodle in the fridge. A bowl of hot and delicious flat noodle(ho fun 河粉) is definitely welcome for us. To make a ho fun soup is really easy and quick!! Just throw everything in the soup pot and you can whip a chow ho soup in 30 minutes. Simple yummy and satisfying!


2 sheets fresh ho fun(flat noodle 河粉),cut strip about 1 inch each.(if ho fun was store in fridge before,dip into water for 1 minutes or microwave for 1 minutes before toss in the soup pot)
1 big stalk Chinese cabbage,washed and cut
1 large piece boneless chicken breast,sliced small
1/2 packet fish cake,sliced
10 pieces medium size shrimp,cleaned and deveined
3 qtr water or chicken stock
2 cubes chicken bouillon(omit if use chicken stock)
soy sauce or salt to taste
some cut cilantro for sprinkle
some fried red onion and garlic
sesame oil for drizzling

1:Prepare a large stock pot with chicken stock or water at high heat.If use water add in chicken bouillon cubes.When water or soup is rolling boil,add in chicken,fish cake,shrimp and vegetables. Add salt or soy sauce. Check the seasoning.
2:Cook those ingredients for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly boil again,then add in cut ho fun.Cook for another 1 minutes,remove from heat immediately.Do not overcooked,coz ho fun will disintegrate in gooey texture.
3:Dish ho fun soup into individual bowl,drizzling with sesame oil,sprinkle with cilantro and fried garlic.Serve warm with cut chili or chili oil on the side.

I'm going to make ho fun for lunch today, though I haven't decided whether to make stir-fry or noodle soup. If I make noodle soup, it won't be as tasty as yours! Yours looks awesome! I love the fried onions and garlic in it.
