Khao Poon for dinner

Khao Poon for dinner

The weather was nice and sunny on Sunday and I went grocery shopping in Chinatown Rotterdam to stock up on fresh herbs, vegetables, and spices. I’m fortunate to be able to buy fresh ingredients in many major cities in Holland all year round, thanks to the shipment of herbs and vegetable from Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia twice a week.

With so much herbs and vegetables on hand, I spent my afternoon making a pot of Lao rice vermicelli soup (khao poon; ເຂົ້າປຸ້ນ) using one whole free range organic chicken.

I tried to remember how my Mama made her Kho Poon and didn’t forget to add some hard boiled eggs in the soup stock.

I made too much for one person and will be eating Khao Poon for the next three days.
