Sotanghon (Glass Noodle) Soup
This is a classic Filipino soup. Ana and Lilibet really wanted to include this recipe, but could not find Tia Pilar's version.
This recipe was downloaded from the internet. Hopefully it is as good as what they remember.

- 6 cloves garlic, chopped fine
- 1 onion, diced
