Sotanghon with Squid

Sauteed Squid in Sotanghon Soup

Recipe by :  Ariel Jasa,  Mandaluyong City, Philippines

This Sotanghon with squid recipe is an easy and quick seafood soup dish to make on a lazy, rainy day.

The sotanghon or cornstarch noodles are softened by soaking in water for a few minutes while the canned squid is being sauteed in garlic and onion.

Adding vinegar makes it a little tart, so the taste is like Adobong Pusit meets sotanghon soup.
