For the last few months I have been constantly craving Vietnamese Vermicelli Noodle Bowls and Vietnamese Iced Coffee.  They have quickly become my favorite foods, so I thought I’d give the noodle bowl a try at home.  It turned out well, and is an easy, light, and healthy dinner.  Since I don’t eat meat most nights with dinner I made this vegetarian, with just veggie toppings, but cooked tofu, shrimp, or chicken would be great in here as well.  I like to serve these with my Ginger Peanut Dressing

To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I make the dressing in the morning and wash and chop all veggies, herbs and nuts, the refrigerate all day. Just prior to serving I cook the noodles and set up an assembly line.

Bowl Ingredients

-cucumber, cut into matchsticks

Set up a bar with the assorted bowl ingredients and let everyone assemble their bowl to their preference.  Top each bowl with a generous amount of dressing and enjoy.
