You could definitely replace the chicken with tofu, or you could use boiled potatoes, or any vegetable really!
I'm going to probably make a batch tonight with a bunch of asparagus. Not sure how lemon grass will work with that, but I'll try it!
It's so rare that I eat meat now, so it could easily be taken out.
Hmm, not sure what area you're in, but at the St.Lawrence market, you can purchase 3 bags of rice vermicelli for $1. Each bag provides about 1 cup cooked, and you'd make about 1/2 cup serving per person.
I've been told if it's found at a grocery store, it's a bit pricey, yeah... But you've got to go to either a fruit/vegetable market place, or go to an Asian food grocery store, those places sell that stuff super cheap!
