Hearty vietnamese-style pork and zucchini soup

soupe-repas-a-la-vietnamienne

I would like to share my memories of childhood flavors and aromas with you. This type of meal is very popular in Asia: the hearty soup-meal! It is with great joy that I present you this unique dish created during a culinary inspiration: the Vietnamese-Style Pork and Zucchini Soup.

It will certainly appeal to the lovers of Asian flavors or to those who would like to be transported to the other side of the world…

Servings : 4

Preparation time : 15 minutes

Cooking time : 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 454 g (1 lb) extra-lean ground pork
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) chopped garlic
  • 3.5 cups (450 g) zucchini, cut into quarters
  • 150g rice vermicelli
  • Dehydrated black mushrooms* (optional)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) white sugar
  • 5 cups (1000 mL) water
  • 5 tbsp (60 mL) fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

* Black mushrooms hydrate and swell in the cooking water, which is why they are added at the same time as the rice vermicelli. Find them at an Asian market near you or buy them online at Walmart!

Preparation:

  1. In a large pot, heat vegetable oil over medium heat.
  2. Sauté onion for 2 minutes, then add garlic and pork. Brown for about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in water, add zucchini, sugar and fish sauce and simmer over medium-high heat for 8 minutes.
  4. Add rice vermicelli and dehydrated black mushrooms. Wait another 2 minutes.
  5. Garnish with cayenne pepper and green onion to taste.
