jonny angel's sunday dinner of banh beo tom chay looked so delicious, i was tempted to make it, but if there's one thing food blogs have taught me, it's that i am not a hardcore foodie. i like food--probably even love it--but if i have to spend more time to prepare a meal than eat it, most likely i won't do it.
this is my faux banh beo: prawns, shallots, green onions, cress, mint, cilantro, chili pepper roughly chopped and mixed with a little salt, a little sugar and nam pla or fish sauce, then dumped on top of steamed rice cakes (dried, store bought variety). pretty, and pretty delish; all the flavours i was looking for, but done within 10 minutes from start to finish.
