In Vietnam, pho, as this rice-noodle soup is known, is often enjoyed for breakfast. Nutritionists recommend incorporating red meat into one's diet just as it's used here -- in small portions and as a complement to other foods. The soup also includes bean sprouts and a handful of fresh herbs.
A ripe mango is firm with some give. Before slicing, peel with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Place peeled mango on its narrow side and, using a sharp knife, cut to each side of the pit, slicing off as much flesh as possible. Reserve the pit for its juice. Slice the mango crosswise, not lengthwise.
