Ingredients for the broth:
2 cubes of chicken stock (Obviously homemade chicken stock would be great, but this is my super-quick version)
1/4 - 1/2 yellow onion
1 spring onion
1 clove of garlic, sliced
1/2 red chili, in chunks
5 cm fresh ginger, sliced
Throw all of the ingredients above in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Skim off any foam as you want to keep the broth as clear as possible.
Pour broth through a fine siv to get rid of the chunks and bits. Pour back into the saucepan.
Keep it simmering until you are ready to use it.
Rice noodles (as much as you want to eat) cooked according to package. Rinse them thoroughly in cold water and set aside until ready to use.
(I use none-carb noodles as I don't eat carbs)
Garlic according to taste (I like A LOT)
salt, white pepper
Make into bite sized meatballs and let simmer in the broth until ready.
You can swap the meatballs for chicken breast, prawns, veggies or whatever you feel like. It's up to you!
The veggies and herbs:
red chili in slices
spring onion in slices
When you are ready to serve do this:
Place noodles in a bowl (not a serving bowl, but the bowl you want to eat in)
Place meatballs on top
Pour over broth
Let everyone help themselves to the veggies and herbs.
Squeeze over lime.
