the amazing dinner - vietnam

So we're following along with the Amazing Race teams and last week they were in Vietnam.  As the teams gathered ingredients (including live chickens) from the markets to make Pho, I thought that it looked like a pretty yummy thing for us to try.  Not the live chickens though.

It's pretty much a broth with noodles, meat, and veges.  DaddyB was chef du jour and he made a beef  pho with snow peas, chili and bean sprouts.  It was delicious.

 You put the noodles in the bowl, top it with the veges and meat, then pour the broth over the top before topping with sprouts, chili and basil (added after the photo).

 It gave the small people a chance to use their funky chopsticks too.

Neither of them liked it much to be honest so we might not be having it again. They did eat it though without much complaining, they really are pretty awesome boys.  
Africa next week... I'll have to google that one!

  3. Allison Holst's Meal Without Meat has a great recipe for African Beans - black eye bean cooked in coconut milk, with tomato paste and spices. Worth a lookup and I think low allergy (GF & DF anyway)

    Very cool round the world tour!!

    1. Oh Yummy. I don't have that book. I have found a recipe for North African beans and eggs though which might be good.
