Being away from my family in LA makes me crave Chinese and Vietnamese food more than ever. I get nostalgic and have serious cravings. Just yesterday I had a bowl of phó. I usually go for the noodles and broth with lots of lime, chile, mint and bean sprouts. Mm..my mouth waters just thinking about all that goodness and fat.
In honor of my mom's wontons, B and I made some veg friendly ones-- with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, potatoes, carrots, vermicelli noodles and lots of ginger and garlic (mushed in a food processor and spooned into little pockets of wontons.) All ingredients courtesy of SF's Chinatown.
