In order for a restaurant to be considered Rich’s favorite it has to meet the following criteria:
- Reasonably priced
- Pretty good food
- Within a 2 block walking radius of where we live
So when a new Pho place opened up across the street I knew it was very likely that Rich would soon proclaim it his favorite place to go and suggest it for dinner approximately every 5 days.
Every time we go for Pho I think to myself how easy it would be to make it at home. So without trying to find a recipe I improvised with what I had and it turned out pretty tasty!
I just boiled some veggie broth and added some chili pepper for taste (about a tsp) but I think the tiniest amount of soy sauce would give the broth an extra kick too. I definitely recommend playing with the taste of the broth before adding any ingredients because they will overcook very fast. After I was happy with the broth I added:
- 1 carrot chopped up
- 1/2 a cabbage sliced (so yummy!)
- 2 green onions
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1/2 a pack of skinny rice noodles
- 1 tsp of salt
Then I served it with a slice of lime.
And because I realize that some people only visit my blog for the occasional cat photo, this one is for you. Here’s Angelina chillin’ like a rock star the other day:
