Shrimp & Vegetable Pho.


  • Bring your broth to a boil and let it simmer with the lid on, so it's ready when you are (Pho broth recipe below).
  • Meanwhile, start compiling your ingredients. What's in your fridge? I had carrot matchsticks, raw spinach, bell peppers and one hot red pepper, green onions, frozen shrimp that I thawed in cold water, bacon that I cooked in the oven earlier that day, zucchini, cilantro, and avocado. Chop it all up and leave in piles on your cutting board.
  • Once the cooking start, this will all take only a few minutes to come together, so just before you're ready to eat, fire up your wok or frying pan. Add a little coconut oil or butter and start with your shrimp. Just stir fry one thing at a time, and when each ingredient is done, drop it in little bundles into the serving bowls. I cooked my shrimp, the white only of my green onions, the peppers, and the bacon (obvi). Everything else, I left raw and added to the bowl in bundles as well.
  • Pour the hot boiling broth over all that delicious goodness, and top with fresh avocado, cilantro, toasted sesame seeds ~ whatever you like.
