Phoking easy soup

I think many of us probably spent a few dollars to much on Pho nights. I mean, it’s definitely one of those things you can’t say no to and for some, it doesn’t seem like it would be easy to make. Good news, it is.

So I decided to quickly put this recipe together for you so you can enjoy Pho without spending a fortune and to enjoy it whenever you want !


⁃ 1 large onion sliced in 3

⁃ 3 inch piece ginger root sliced in half.

Cook with 1 tbsp of sesame oil on high until you have a dark golden color on both sides of ginger and onions.

Bring large pot of water to a boil with

⁃ a few cloves

-2 tbsp of fish sauce

⁃ 3 full branches of cilantro

⁃ 5 star anise

⁃ 3 cinnamon sticks

⁃ 4 tbsp of organic powder broth (beef, chicken or vegetable, your choice.)

⁃ Pinch of salt

⁃ Pepper to taste

⁃ 4 full garlic cloves

⁃ Add in garlic and ginger

Bring all these ingredients to a boil then keep broth on medium-low until dinner is ready. Strain all ingredients out before serving to disregard the cinnamon sticks, cloves, anise stars, onions, garlic and cilantro branches.

*Bring back to a boil right before serving.*

Now slice up 2 chicken breast, cook with sesame oil,

⁃ 1 tsp of ground ginger

⁃ 1 tsp of garlic powder

⁃ Pinch of salt and pepper

Boil 2 large eggs for 10 minutes

Now for all the fun refreshing stuff

⁃ 1 thinly sliced carrot

⁃ Baby bok Choy slice in half

⁃ A bunch of sprouts

⁃ Chopped greens onions

⁃ Fresh mint

⁃ Fresh cilantro

⁃ Sliced lime

⁃ 1 thinly sliced celery

⁃ Go nuts !!!!

Now boil some rice noodles for about 5 minutes ( see introduction ).

First add noodle to bowl, then broth, then fresh veggies, herbs and protein.

Note* There is no such thing as to much cilantro.
