This meal was a hit in my house this week, It was rainy and we were all craving something warm so I whipped up my own little pho soup recipe.


I started by boiling my broth, I used 8 cups of water, 2 "Not-Beef Bouillon Cubes" and seasoned along the way with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste.

While the broth is boiling I chopped red cababge, bok choy, mint, cilantro, green onion, lime, & a few handfuls of sprouts, we love sprouts!

My little is not a fan of mushrooms so I just added a few in my bowl- while the broth is boiling I dropped my mushrooms and cabbage in it to soften them just a bit. I like my veggies still a bit crunchy so I just let them boil for about a minute or two, if you like more soft veggies then leave in a while longer.

THE NOODLES! While the broth is still boiling I also boiled vermicelli noodles for 6 minutes, then run under cold water.

This noodle turned out PERFECT, It took me a while to master the kind of noodle I like for this soup.

I used store brought spring rolls, AMAZING!

and added my favorite pho sauces!

I like to place my noodles and toppings in the bowl then the broth.

My picky 2 and 9 year old ate 3 BOWLS and my oldest gave me 5 STARS thumbs up, I hope you enjoy! If you do hashtag #Paigewhatsfordinner
