Pho Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup)
I have recently seen a lot of buzz on the food network and online about pho. Pho (pronounced FUH) is a vietnamese soup that can be made with any kind of meat. I chose to make a chicken pho (pho ga) and had a lot of fun styling, photographing, and eating my pho! Also very excited was my son, who brought in our neighbor from outside while I was in the middle of photographing it because he just “had to see it”.
I chose a recipe by Jaden Hair at Steamy Kitchen (click below for recipe). I really enjoyed the lovely, comforting flavors in the broth, balanced with the spicy kick from the chilis, the crunchy fresh veggies and tang of the lime. Comfort food for sure.
I chose to keep my toppings the same as she suggested, with an addition of chopped green onion. Other additions I have noticed are fresh mint and thai basil, and those would also be delicious.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
