Preparation:

1. In a medium pot, pour the chicken broth. Add the fish sauce and the lime juice. Complete with the the curry paste if desired. Do not salt since the fish sauce is already very salty.

Also, have your soup ready-to-eat at school or at work by keeping it warm in a thermos!

1. Before cutting the vegetables, Preheat the thermos by filling them with boiling water and close the lid.

2. Drain water from the thermos when ready to split up the noodles and vegetables.

3. Fill every thermos of boiling liquid and close. The broth has to be as hot as possible if we want the soup being still warm at lunchtime.
