Ready in 30 minutes
This chicken-based soup recipe takes some liberties with traditional Vietnamese pho ga, skipping the long stock-making process and eliminating the fish sauce, which is loaded with sodium. Feel free to add your own favorite vegetables to the broth.

In a 3-quart saucepan, bring chicken stock to a boil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, sugar (if using) and cardamom, and let simmer for 10 minutes.
In a separate saucepan, cook rice noodles according to package directions, drain, rinse and divide between two soup bowls.
Add chicken to stock and let cook for 5 minutes.
Divide mung beans between 2 soup bowls. Divide soup between the two bowls, then top each serving with half of the scallions, and the chili sauce. Garnish bowls with a slice of lime and pieces of cilantro.
Freezing the chicken for 10 or 15 minutes makes it easier to slice into thin strips.
