Mushroom Pho Mo

Press GO to unleash the MOB step by step feature.

Step 1.

Finely slice your mushrooms. Drizzle with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a griddle pan. Add your mushrooms in batches. Remove when grilled and shrivelled.

Step 2.

Get on with your broth. Add 2 good quality stock cubes to a pan. Pour in 800ml of water. Mix the cubes into the stock.

Step 3.

Add a tbsp of coriander seeds and 1 star anise. Add a finely chopped red chilli and a chopped up knob of ginger. Add fish sauce and the juice of a lime. Cook the soup on a medium heat for 10 minutes.

Step 4.

Finely peel your carrots and set aside.

Step 5.

Get your rice noodles ready. Add them to a bowl and cover with boiling water. After 3 minutes, drain and rinse.

Step 6.

Back to the broth. Give it a good stir. Remove from the heat.

Step 7.

Assemble time. Add some noodles, carrots and mushrooms to a bowl. Top with the broth and then scatter over some fresh mint and coriander leaves. Get a spoon and get stuck in!

Leave the mushrooms in the pan for a while to get them nice and toasty. Also, good veggie stock is key here! I have budgeted for it so make sure you get the right stuff!
