Pho!

So a few weeks back I got my very first taste of an all veggie Pho. It was love at first slurp. And I mean slurp. Like how do you eat this gracefully ? I came away with more on my chin and my top than I probably ate. But wow. Was it amazing. I couldn’t wait to get home and start playing with some flavours. And this has been my best effort so far.

This recipe serves two.

Broth :

4 cups Mushroom Stock

1 Inch Ginger sliced

2 Cloves garlic minced

2 Star Anise

1 Cinnamon Stick

1 tbs Shoyu (or Soy Sauce)

1 Lime -juice only

A handful of Basil

2 Tsp Maple Syrup
Filling and topping :

Noodles (I used brown rice )

1 Cup Mushrooms

3 Green onions (spring onions )

1 Large handful Bean Sprouts

Extra Basil

Pop all of the stock ingredients into a medium saucepan and simmer together gently for 15-20 minutes. Sieve out the the aromatics once the broth is well flavoured and the kitchen smells amazing.

At this point slice your Mushrooms and green onions. Add your noodles to the simmering broth and pop the mushrooms in there too. Once cooked decant into two bowls and topping with Bean Sprouts , Lime wedges and more Basil. Give a final adornment of Green onions. Grab a spoon and some chopsticks and give it your all!
