I'm super excited about this cookbook. I finally added it to my repertoire at Christmas and I've just been blown away by everything we've made so far. You know a cookbook is good when you read it like a novel.
I really liked Pho when I was a meateater. Since being vegan, I've discovered it's nearly impossible to find a version in a restaurant that isn't loaded with tripe, tendon and other assorted nasties. Yeuch.
I nearly jumped with joy when I was first flipping through the index of Vegan Eats World and saw a recipe called Sizzling Seitan Pho Noodle Soup (the recipe is in that link). Trevor made it one day while I was working and he was off work (yeah, I'm a lucky lady, my husband makes me soup that includes broth from scratch. I know). He said the soup was labour intensive, but the final result was out of this world.
That broth. Holy crap. It was sweet, spicy, sour, savoury all at once. I couldn't stop slurping my broth. Screw the rest of the dish, that broth!
Those chunks are both the Coriander Seitan Cutlets from the book, and baked tofu. Honestly, I preferred the tofu, and I think next time we make it, I'll just make it a Tofu Pho instead of seitan.
