Ingredients
For the Broth:
  • 2 L vegetable broth (8 cups)
  • 3 cup(s) water
  • 1 yellow onion quartered
  • 4 clove(s) garlic roughly chopped
  • 3 whole star anise
  • 3 whole cloves (the spice)
  • 1 inch piece(s) fresh ginger sliced into coins
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Soy sauce to taste
  • 1 package wide rice noodles
For the Toppings (use whatever combo you like):
  • fresh basil (Thai basil is preferable if you can find it)
  • fresh cilantro
  • Fresh mint
  • Fresh green onions
  • Mung bean sprouts
  • Hot peppers (I like Mirasol peppers, which are long, red, and not very spicy)
  • Peanuts
  • Sautéed mushrooms (I like shiitakes)
  • Sautéed tofu
  • Hot sauce
  • Lime wedges
Instructions
  • Add the broth, water, onion, garlic, star anise, whole cloves, ginger, and cinnamon, to a large pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Taste and add soy sauce as needed. The amount you need will vary a bit depending on your taste preference and how salty the broth you used is, I used 2 tablespoons.
  • Bring a big pot of water to a boil and cook your rice noodles. Follow the package directions or if there are none, cook until al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain, and rinse with cold water to stop the noodles cooking.
  • When everything is ready, serve by adding noodles to a bowl, using a ladle to collect the broth (leaving the onion and spices behind), and then top with garnishes of choice.
