I posted this recipe on my Instagram stories over the weekend, but said I would also post it on the blog to reference later. Pho ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup) is one of my favorite easy recipes to make and so cozy on chilly nights. I have made this a ton and each time I have added and removed ingredients that I like better. I prefer to use Udon noodles opposed to thin rice noodles. In this version I also omitted the chicken because the broth has so much flavor it isn’t always necessary.
Pho Ga Recipe
5 cups chicken stock
Juice from 1 lime
1 piece of ginger (peeled and minced)
2 cloves of garlic (peeled and minced)
1 tbsp. coriander
I package cold Udon Noodles (they are in the produce section of my grocery store)
In a large pot (I use a dutch oven) heat the chicken stock and lime, add the ginger, garlic, salt, pepper and coriander. Stir and let sit over medium to low heat to let the flavors combine. Cook the udon noodles according to package instructions and add to broth. If you are using chicken this is where I boil the chicken and shred it, then combine to the noodle broth. Give everything a good stir. I top with cilantro, lime, green onion, basil and jalapeno. You can add as little or as much as you want, it all adds so much flavor!
