In Vietnamese cuisine there are many types of noodle soup, but the most significant one of Hanoi city is Bún Thang. 😊😊😊 . “Bún” means rice vermicelli and “thang” diverts from “thang thuốc”, which means a unit of herbal medicine, because this dish is made of little amounts of many ingredients, just as a pack of herbal medicine would be. . This noodle soup is traditionally eaten during “Tết” holiday, on the 4th day of the New Year to be precise. On this day, Vietnamese would burn joss paper and perform ritual worshipping to say thanks and farewell to their ancestors whose spirits have come to join the family during New Year’s eve. After that, the remaining food from the last days would be renovated to make “Bún Thang”. . . As all traditional noodle soup, the heart of the dish lies in the broth. The clear hot broth is stewed from chicken bones and shrimps with the cook constantly skimming it. A well-cooked broth is clear, fragrant and has just a little bit of lingering sweet taste of shrimps and dried mushroom. “Bún Thang” is cooked with a few drops of belostomatidae aroma and served with “mắm tôm” (shrimp paste) to make it even more flavorful. Enjoy!!! 🤗😋😊😍😘 . —– — 👥 Tag a friend who'd like this ❤️💚💙 — – …FOLLOW @vnlocalfood 👈 to discover delicious food along with the most interesting places in Vietnam. — – 📸 by @today_we_cook 😍 Source: http://silkpathhotel.com … .. . #vietnameseeats #vietnamese #foodhistory #foodculture #homecooked #homecooking #foodblogger #asianfood #asianculture #vietnam #먹스타 #먹스타그램 #vietnamesefood #vihomemademeal #hoian #danang #travelfood #homecookedmeal #homecook #homemadewithloveetfood #foodie #スイーツ #食べ物 #tastingtable #foodporn #foodblogger #buzzfeedfood #foodiefeature #feastagram

This is what they had to say about Lebanese food:

“This centuries-old cuisine is packed with a long list of ancient, healthy ingredients. One that’s gaining in popularity in the U.S. is freekeh, a whole-wheat grain that’s low in fat; high in protein, fiber, iron, calcium, and zinc; and known for keeping blood sugar levels in check.”

“Lentils—a good source of fiber, manganese, iron, and protein—and chickpeas are other staples of Lebanese cuisine. The latter is used to make hummus, which can lower cholesterol.”
