Pho Easy – 15 Minute Noodle Soup

I love Pho.

Now, let’s start with a little Pho lesson.  “The general theory held by most Vietnamese culinary experts is that the wordpho” is a corruption of the French “feu” or “fire.” Pho could be a Vietnamese adaptation of the French soup “pot au feu” or French beef stew, which the French brought to Vietnam when they came to rule the country”

Pho is a noodle soup.  Filled with  an abundance of flavour and fresh veggies, you can spice it up with chilli and corriander. This is my take on the soup. I used left overs from my fridge as I hate waste.  You can find beautiful bowls for your Pho here.

How do you have your Pho?
