Sotanghon Noodle Soup
Sotanghon Noodle Soup is another popular Pinoy noodle soup. It is usually served as merienda. Sotanghon noodle soup is popular at karinderias, at school and office canteens. I have always missed those orange colored noodle soup served at our office canteen when I was starting to work.

Sotanghon Soup

Sotanghon noodle soup is very easy to prepare. The secret of a delicious noodle soup is the broth. I used one whole chicken including the optional pork meat and boiled for at least 30 minutes for the broth. Just keep aside the extra chicken for future use. In addition use also generous amount of garlic and stir fried until fragrant. The orange tint of sotanghon soup is derived from the use of achuete it gives that distinct flavour beside the visual appeal. Here is the recipe enjoy.
