Updated: Sep 4, 2018


Hello all,


We hope you have had a great summer thus far! With this smoke in the NW that has recently crept in, along with flu/cold season right around the corner we wanted to share a very yummy recipe for all you Pho lovers, and maybe new ones as well:)

This is an excellent dish to make when you’re not feeling good, or just want something good to eat! We hope you enjoy this great recipe that Traci has wonderfully put together with your friends, family, and maybe even your customers!

If we have a pho cooking class in the future we will be sure to update the blog with pictures, but if you just want to try this amazing soup without cooking, I have heard that

Pho-Oregon is an excellent restaurant to try out here in Portland for Pho first timers.😊


FEEL BETTER PHO: COLD RELIEF VEGGIE NOODLE SOUP

By Traci Antonovich

Feel Better Pho is a go-to plant-based, Asian soup for cold symptom relief. It’s a 15-minute soup, so when a cold hit me out of nowhere, I can make this with little preparation. Much like my recipe which uses everyday ingredients and tackles even my worst sore throat pain.

FEEL BETTER PHO: COLD RELIEF VEGGIE NOODLE SOUP

When seasonal cold finds you unprepared with no emergency cans of noodle soup on hand, this is the soup to turn to. It’s a light, Asian-inspired pho made with fresh veggies, noodles, broth, and a few toppings. This comfort food was born out of desperation when I was home alone, with an unexpected cold. All I wanted at that moment was a warm bowl of veggies and noodles in a simple broth with some heat, like peppers. So, in my cold-stricken state, I raided my refrigerator and pantry. I came up with Feel Better Pho, which relieved my hunger and my craving for nutrients and hydration. Pho the win!

SO, HOW DO YOU MAKE PHO?

I’m not sure how traditional my approach is, but it goes like this:

1. Cook noodles

2. Sauté veggies

3. Add broth

4. Put cooked noodles in a bowl

5. Pour broth over noodles

6. Add garnish toppings

7. Devour!

WHAT ARE THE BEST NOODLES FOR PHO?

Pho is generally made with rice noodles. You can use white or brown rice noodles…I love both. However, for this recipe post, I used Soba buckwheat noodles (as you may see in the pictures). They offer a nutty flavor that you won’t get from rice noodles. In general, though, I think I prefer rice noodles. I’m kind of a traditionalist like that. Btw, have you tried Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Spaghetti Noodles? Those babies are awesome, and I would use them in this recipe in a heartbeat! It comes together in 15 minutes if you use packaged vegetable broth.

Here’s an overview of that:

· Chop and sauté veggies (mushrooms, cabbage, onions, celery, garlic, ginger)

· Add water and simmer 20 minutes

· Strain broth

· Remove veggies (optional)

· Pour over cooked noodles

Whether you make my recipe, or use a pre-made broth, you’re ready to Feel Better Pho darned quick!

HERE ARE THE INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE FEEL BETTER PHO:

· white or brown rice noodles (I used Soba here)

· oil

· green onions

· mushrooms (chopped)

· vegetable broth

· (garnish) cilantro, lime, jalapeño, peanuts

HERE ARE THE TOOLS I USE:

· chef knife and cutting board

· 2-quart saucepot (to boil noodles)

· 3-quart saucepot (for soup)
