  1. Combine chicken broth, star anise, ginger paste, and sriracha hot sauce in a stockpot; bring to a boil. Add tofu, broccoli, mushrooms, and carrots and cook until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Bring a separate pot of water to a boil. Remove pot from heat and add rice noodles to the water; let stand until noodles are softened, about 4 minutes. Drain water and rinse noodles under cold water.
  3. Remove star anise from broth mixture.
  4. Pile cold noodles into serving bowls and top with broth mixture; garnish with green onion.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Chicken or meat can be added to soup if desired.
  • Vegetable broth can also be substituted for the chicken broth. Using 4 cups water and 4 bouillon cubes is also a substitution.
  • Fresh ginger can be substituted for the ginger paste.
