What’s for Breakfast?: Vietnamese Pho

by in Healthy Recipes, October 13, 2012

pho
We’re all familiar with breakfast staples like cereal, scrambled eggs and toast but how does the rest of the world start their day? In Vietnam a rich and aromatic soup made with rice noodles called pho is often eaten at breakfast.

The soup starts with a long simmered broth of roasted beef or chicken bones typically with spices like ginger, cinnamon and star anise (your kitchen will smell amazing!). It’s ladled over noodles into big bowls and lucky eaters get to stir in their favorite flavors and toppings like lime juice, fish sauce, bean sprouts, chilies, onion, mint and basil.

Hungry? Try pho for breakfast sometime. Here’s a delicious simplified version of pho that can be made in advance. Reheat the broth and keep toppings refrigerated in an airtight container. Try using low-sodium soy sauce in place of the fish sauce.

Remember that pho is perfect for dinner too!

    Fabulous! I would always rather go with a savory dish rather than sweet (steel cut oats aside!), even for breakfast. Try Bragg's in place of fish sauce. Lower sodium and a great broth maker. This is a great way to start the day on a cold fall or winter day. I'll be doing this again, early and often.
