I made some beef pho again today -check out the new photo, I've just updated the post- and I felt like making a phở chay, vegetarian rice noodle soup for the rest of the family. The only extra work for pho chay, in addition to the beef pho (for the carnivores at home) is to fry some silken tofu and make the vegetarian broth.

Vegemite is a combination of yeast byproduct and vegetable flavorings, and if you've never had it, it sort of has the taste of beef boullion cubes. Vegemite is not only great as a spread on a piece of bread, but can be a tasty addition to vegetable broth. Though not traditional, I used a bit in my pho broth to give it a more complex flavor.
