Whats not to love about Pho? Broth, noodles, herbs, spices, yumminess! and vegan pho is the easiest pot of love you will ever make. No rules well ok a few but I’ve made this 100 different ways and it always tastes more or less the same.
Bring a big pot of water to the boil and add your selection of veg and fruit.
Anything really goes but I would definitely try and include a carrot or two and leeks really add a kick also.
I roughly chopped the following and added them to the pot:
5 cloves of garlic
Scoop of coconut sugar
2 tbls of sea salt
Into the oven at 180c I roasted
1 large piece of ginger sliced lengthways
2 red onions
For 15 min
I wrapped the ginger and spices up in a muslin cloth and added to the pot along with the onion.
If you don’t have a cloth just pop them all in and strain the stock later.
I left it simmer for almost 2 hours. The longer the better. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
I fried off some mushrooms in soy sauce, smoked tofu in chinese five spice and I cooked a little batch of rice noodles.
Place noodles in a bowl
Ladle over a few scoops of stock
And top with scallions, basil, radishes, green and red chilli, sriracha sauce and a squeeze of lime or whatever takes your fancy.
(Thai basil is better here and coriander is great too as are beansprouts.)
Slurpy, wonderful, hearty and veeeegan.
