I have that nasty once a year summer cold that ruins all of your plans and makes getting work done a trial. A lot of us Midwesterners go straight for the chicken noodle soup recipe. I go to my favorite soup recipe, the one that I can eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and late night “Iprobablydon’tneedtoeatrightnowbutwhattheheythisismyfavorite” meals. Vietnamese pho cures all. And for Vietnamese food I either order from my favorite Des Moines restaurant, A Dong, or I go straight to any recipe from Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen.
Pho Ga – Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup
Pho Ga broth simmering on the stove.
The sexy side fixin’s: green onion, jalapeno, fresh cilantro, bean sprouts and lime wedges.
Everyone eats their pho a little differently. I start mine with a liberal dose of sriracha chili sauce.
Sriracha… I’d put this on my breakfast cereal if I could eat breakfast cereal.
Squeeze the lime and add the remaining vegetables.
It doesn’t get any better than this. Pho ga… miracle cure!
