Vietnamese Homemade Pork Stock/Broth (Nuoc Leo Suon Heo)

In Vietnamese cooking, we always clean bones first before making stock. Either rubbing them down with salt and giving them a good rinse with water, or parboiling the bones with salted water, cleaning the bones will get rid of all the impurities to keep the stock clear. In other words, boiling the bones first will remove all the gunk and make the stock pretty. In Vietnamese cooking, a highly prized stock is a clear stock.

Vietnamese Kabocha Squash Soup with Chicken (Canh Bi Do Nau Ga)

Soups, otherwise known as canh, is a staple in Vietnamese home cooking. However, rather than being served on its own, soup is treated as a side dish to steamed rice and a protein entrée. A simple Winter/Fall soup is Vietnamese Kabocha Squash.

Vietnamese Sweet & Sour Catfish Soup (Canh Chua Ca Tre)

Whenever I come home from traveling, I long for nothing more than traditional Vietnamese home-cooked food. And nothing's more traditional than Vietnamese Sweet and Sour Catfish Soup (Canh Chua Cá Trê) and Vietnamese Caramelized Clay Pot Cat Fish (Cá Kho Tộ). One fish. Two easy dishes. Add steamed white rice and you have a complete Vietnamese home-cooked meal.

Vietnamese Sour Soup with River Leaf (Canh Chua La Giang)

La Giang, also called River Leaf, mainly grows in Southeast Asian countries. During my recent trip to Vietnam, I made sure to bring some home with me. The leaves were boiled, frozen, and tucked neatly into my check-in baggage. Now when I have that craving for Canh Chua, I just thaw out my frozen boiled La Giang and I'm ready to go.

Vietnamese Sweet & Sour Soup with Squid (Canh Chua Muc)

Time and time again, I proclaimed Canh Chua is the best Vietnamese soup for a Vietnamese home cooked meal. I just love the smorgasbord of bold flavors: sweet, sour and spicy. Plus, you can use whatever protein and vegetables you like. The only requirements are the tomatoes (for the vibrant red color), and the green aromatic garnish of either Thai Basil, Culantro, or Rice Paddy Herbs. The rest is entirely up to you. For this version, I use squid for the protein and thin Enoki mushrooms for the vegetables. And of course, loads and loads of Thai chili for that wonderful kick of heat. Nothing makes me happier than a very spicy Canh Chua that makes me cry.

Vietnamese Papaya Soup with Pork (Canh Du Du Nau Thit Nac)

Vietnamese folk remedy says Papaya Soup, or Canh Du Du, stimulates lactation in new mothers. Whether it's true or not, I surely didn't complain when I was endlessly served Canh Du Du after the birth of my children. Canh Du Du and Vietnamese Sour Catfish Soup (Canh Chua) are two my favorite Vietnamese soups.

Vietnamese Stuffed Cabbage Soup (Canh Bap Cai Cuon Thit)

When eating a Vietnamese rice dinner, it's not a complete meal unless you have a soup side dish, also known as Canh. One of the quickest and simplest Canh is ground pork with cabbage. It can, however, look dull in a bowl. To fancy it up, I would stuff cabbage leaves with ground pork and tie it with a green onion, making cute little packages of savory goodness. The taste is the same whether I stuff the cabbage or not, but it makes a pretty presentation. It requires a little bit more labor but it's a great way to fish for the needed compliments once in awhile.
