Vietnamese Style Noodle Bowl

Vietnamese bowl ingredientsThis is an adaptation of the Vermicelli bowl served usually as Lunch specials at Vietnamese restaurants in Austin. I like it because it has a fresh bright flavor and is relatively light.

 Components:

1) Noodles / Vermicelli

    *  I used regular spaghetti and cooked it as per packet directions. Ideally, Rice Vermicelli is needed as it is lighter and has a more pleasant texture than Spaghetti.

2) The Sauce:

    * Base recipe:

  • 1/2 cup soy-based seasoning sauce (like Golden Mountain)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 limes, freshly squeezed
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili paste or finely chopped fresh or dried chilies

    * Use Chopped green Chiles and Toasted sesame seeds as well.

Dilute the sugar with hot water and set aside to cool. Once it is cooled, add the vinegar, lime juice, and soy sauce. Lastly, mix in the garlic and chilies. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning as needed: If the sauce tastes too concentrated, dilute with a little water. If it tastes too sweet, add more lime juice or vinegar, then add soy sauce to balance. If it tastes too sour, add a little more sugar and soy sauce, and a bit of water to balance.


2) Veggies and Baked Tofu:

   Vietnamese Bowl * Coarsely chopped Iceberg Lettuce.
    * Julienned Carrots and Cucumbers.
    * Tofu cut into (Quarter inch X quarter inch X 1.5 inches)
          o I marinated the tofu in the sauce for 10 minutes and baked for 25 mins in 425F Oven
    * Ground Peanuts
    * Fresh Cilantro and Mint.


Assembly:

1) In a Fairly large bowl, lay down the chopped lettuce.
2) Now make a layer of Vermicelli/Noodles.
3) Top with Carrots, Cucumbers and Tofu.
4) Ladle some of the sauce on this.
5) Garnish with Cilantro and Mint.
6) Ladle some more sauce.
7) Top with the ground/chopped peanuts.


LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip. The board must approve those two and other documents before any ground breaking. The team wants to play in Sin City starting in 2020.Guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase. On Thursday, the board learned the tax increase yielded more than $13.1 million from March through May. That's 16 percent ahead of projections.The team and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million to the project. In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
