A few years ago, I'd never even heard of pho, let alone tasted it. Now, giant bowls of this traditional Vietnamese noodle soup are a regular meal in our house.
There are three things I can thank for this change: 1) Moving to a part of the country where pho restaurants are as common as pizza joints. 2) Several months of gluten-free eating last year due to a health issue. 3) Meeting and becoming friends with Vietnamese cooking expert Andrea Nguyen.
Andrea has now published a new book entirely devoted to — what else?! — pho, and I'd like to share with you her recipe for Quick Chicken Pho.
This recipe is a great introduction to pho if you've never had it before. And for pho addicts like myself, it's a good one to have around when a pho-craving strikes.
Friends, I have a new favorite way to cook eggs—in a mug, in a microwave.
No kidding. For reals!
Why??? Well first, it takes only a couple minutes to make, and clean-up is easy.
Second, while so many microwave mug recipes result in a poor substitute for something properly cooked, a microwaved mug omelette is surprisingly tender and delicious.
Third, when I'm trying to eat light, this way of cooking eggs cuts down substantially on added fat. It just uses a quick spray of cooking oil (or a wipe of olive oil) on the inside of the mug. (For those of you who count calories, I counted 200 in this recipe, your analysis may vary.)
