Chicken noodle soup never fails to satisfy us. The wholesome combination of chicken, noodles and vegetables in a savory broth is endlessly nourishing. Here, we’re serving up a Thai take on the classic dish, using red curry paste. The addition of Worcestershire sauce to the broth adds a piquant note, which balances the earthiness of the mushrooms. Topped with cilantro and scallions, this dish is a whole new take on comfort food.
