This is my take on a quick, at home version of Pho. Some of my ingredients are non traditional, but it's my recipe, right? My husband's eyes light up when I hand him a giant bowl of this to enjoy and that's what counts.

Ingredients

FOR THE BROTH

2
boneless skinless chicken breasts, you can use other cuts if preferred
1 Tbsp
better than bullion chicken flavor
1/2
white onion
1 tsp
ground ginger in the tube, or fresh grated ginger
1 tsp
ground lemongrass in the tube, or stalk fresh
1 Tbsp
thai fish sauce

FOR THE BOWLS

1 pkg
pho noodles, or substitute rice noodles or regular thin spaghetti
4 or 5
leaves napa cabbage, sliced across in 1 inch sections
1 c
snow pea pods
1/2 c
julienne or matchstick carrots
1 c
fresh bean sprouts

1/2 bunch

thai red chili sauce or siracha sauce
1
fresh limes cut in wedges

Step-By-Step

1Note: I use breasts to keep it low fat. If you want a more traditional flavor use skin on bone in pieces of your choice. Adjust your cooking time.
2Ingredient note: I use the tubes of ginger and lemongrass that you find in the produce section of the grocery. It's a time saver for me and I always have them on hand.
3Place everything for the broth in a pot with about 3 quarts of water. Bring to a slow simmer and skim off the skum that rises.
4When chicken is done remove it from the pot. About 20 minutes for boneless breasts. Leave the broth simmering.
5Prepare your noodles according to package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water.
6Have all of your bowl ingredients ready. Put the snow peas, cabbage,and carrots in the broth. Turn up heat and cook on a low boil for 5 minutes.
7While that's cooking assemble the bowls. Place noodles in first, top with spinach and sprouts.
8Slice the chicken and place on top.
9Ladle the hot broth into the bowls. The heat will be enough to cook the spinach and sprouts.
10Serve immediately with the garnishes.
