Cheater's Pho (Vietnamese Noodle Soup)
Broth (we double the broth, since we like a lot of broth)
  1. 2 quarts of organic chicken stock
  2. 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  3. 2 bay leaves
  4. 2 star anise
  5. 4 cloves
  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/4 teaspoon coriander
The "stuff" in the broth (amounts vary on your taste)
  1. Carrots, sliced into disks
  2. Cabbage, cut into bite-size pieces
  3. Broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
  4. Store-bought organic rotisserie chicken, shredded into bite-sized pieces
  5. Onion, sliced
  6. Rice stick noodles, soaked in hot water according to package instructions
  7. (optional) basil, lime wedges, mung bean sprouts
  1. Pour chicken broth into a pot, and add fish sauce, bay leaves ground ginger, and coriander. Put the star-anise and cloves into a tea strainer or cheese cloth tied with twine and place it in the broth. Let it come to a boil, then simmer.
  2. Put a bit of broccoli, cabbage, carrots, chicken, and onion in the broth and let them cook until tender.
  3. Put some softened rice noodles into a bowl, and ladle the broth. Pick out some veggies and chicken to place on top. You can add fresh basil, mung bean sprouts, and a squeeze of lime if you wish. Sriracha sauce is also a nice addition.
