Super Simple Soupy Wonton Wrapper Noodle ...





When writing the post (Revolutionized instead of Veganized), I recalled my late mother brought back some dried wonton wrappers from Malaysia few decades ago. She used them to cook a piping hot soupy "wonton wrappers" noodle for us. I could not remember what soup base or ingredients she used now.

Thank you Anonymous and Chow Vegan.

Sometimes simplicity can be beautiful. Just like Japanese Cha Soba. And also the Soupy Udon with Fried Bean curd that I had at Incheon Airport. Simple and yet delicious.

Cheers :)
