The secret to making superquick, Asian-style noodle soups is to enliven canned chicken broth with classic Vietnamese flavorings. I came across this recipe on Cooks Illustrated and is a process I will use from here on out. For this soup, be sure to have all the vegetables and herbs ready at hand. As I have not prepared this yet, my prep time and cook time are estimates.
