Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the onion and celery; chop the pepper; peel the sweet potato then dice it. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and pepper, then sauté until softened, about 5 min. Stir in the cumin, ground coriander, ginger, and chili pepper. Cook 1 min with stirring.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice sticks then set aside.
  4. Add the potatoes, beans, broth and fish sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer 10 min. Add the bok choy and continue to cook until the vegetables are cooked al dente, about 5 more min. At the very end, stir in the cooked rice sticks. Warm up and adjust the seasoning.
  5. Portion out the soup into the individual serving bowls, garnish with chopped cilantro leaves, and serve.
