This magical Pho soup broth is made in the traditional Vietnamese method, utilizing chicken items and infused with spices. Utilizing store-bought stock simply isn’t the same! Pho tastes like chicken or beef stock, with the flavor of basil and a word of ginger. Typically, bean sprouts are added to the bowl of pho, to create a distinction in texture and provide the dish some crunch.



  1. Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of a large pot and season them with salt and pepper. Cover the chicken with water. Bring the water to a gentle boil. Once the liquid is boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes until the chicken is done (internal temperature of 165⁰F). Remove the chicken from water and let rest until cool enough to shred.
  2.  In a large pot, bring the chicken broth and water to boil. Add the veggie “noodles” and bring to boil. Turn off the heat.
  3. . Place the “noodles” at the bottom of a bowl, and top with shredded chicken, sprouts, and onion.
  4. Add the broth and sesame oil. Garnish with coriander, basil, peppers, and scallion.


  • In case you don’t have ALL the herbs. No less than 2 of three, and you continue to have close to genuine expertise. If you’ll be able to solely get one, make it coriander!
  • Char onion and ginger – this gives a refined smokey perfume to the broth that could be a signature function of Pho. So char them nicely!
