Whether you wake up with an aching head from a few too the night before, or just need something warm and filling to get through these final cold days, this Thai-inspired soup will set you right. Rice is cooked right in the broth, generously seasoned with lemongrass, shallots, and garlic. With savory ground pork to give it some heft and a finishing drizzle of fish sauce, it's a dish that's simple, flavor-packed, and wholly satisfying.

It's so simple, in fact, that you'll want to load up your bowl with garnishes. I like to add flavor and texture with sliced chilies, fresh scallions, chopped cilantro, and some tender cubes of tofu.
