Here is our first recipe share! A Delish VEGAN PHO RECIPE that will have you coming back for more!
We’ve been Vegan for a while now and I gotta tell you it’s great! Lupus is a horrible thing and the only thing that controls it is diet… so is not like we planned on being vegan, our bodies kind of just asked and led us to this. We also don’t support animal cruelty and strongly subscribe to the idea that animals aren’t really here for us but with us. Veganism was the perfect fit for us. Anyway, one thing is for sure and that is that we love to cook!!
This vegan pho recipe will have you pouring more and more!
SUPER EASY VEGAN PHO!
Makes about 6 decent size servings
Vegan Pho Recipe Ingredients:
🍜 10 oz rice noodles (1 packet of rice noodles)
🍜 1 tablespoon whole black crushed pepper
🍜 1 tablespoon coriander
🍜 4 pods whole star anise (sprouts has them to buy per ounce, no need to buy a whole container)Anise is what gives PHO its distinctive scent and flavor. 💪
🍜 1 piece fresh ginger, about 2 inch piece thinly sliced
🍜 1 bunch green onion (white part sliced and green part sliced too. White is for cooking, green is as garnish later)
🍜 about 8 cups water
🍜 3-4 tbsp vegan bouillon (I use the Not-Beef Cubes brand)
🍜 2 tbsp soy sauce (for during cooking and after as garnish to taste)
🍜 Firm Tofu – fried on all sides with pepper, salt and coconut oil.
FOR SERVING, garnish to taste
🍜 Limes cut in wedges
🍜 1 jalapeño thinly sliced with seeds in
🍜 1 bunch fresh basil torn/ chopped
🍜 1 bunch green onion or cilantro
🍜 Siracha hot sauce
🍜 Fresh Bean Sprouts
🍜 1. Fill a large bowl with warm water or heat up and then let sit. Place rice noodles and soak for about 15 minutes.
🍜 2. Meanwhile, heat a large deep pot over medium-high heat. Toast the black pepper, coriander, and star anise pods for 3 minutes, until fragrant I use a bit coconut oil to mix.
🍜 3. Also heat up another pan to fry the tofu. You will need to drain the tofu first. Cut into strips (not cubes) to fry first. Cut to cubes at the end when you’re mixing it all in the step 2 pot.
🍜 4. While the condiments are toasting, peel the ginger and cut into pieces. Trim the ends off the green onions, then chop 5 inches off the bases and save the remaining green tops for later.
🍜 5. Add the ginger and green onion bases to the pot then add the water and vegan bouillon. Increase the heat to high, cover, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat.
🍜 6. While the broth heats up, thinly slice the green onion tops. Cut the lime into wedges. Thinly slice the jalapeño.
🍜 7. After about 15 minutes of soaking, drain the rice noodles, let cool for a bit then return to the step 2 pot. You should have all the condiments with water and bouillon simmering ready to add the rice noodles and the fried tofu.
🍜 8. Add the tofu squares into the pot along with the rice noodles and then also about 2 table spoons of soy sauce (this is to taste, check the broth to see if it needs more soy sauce or anise) If you add more anise, let it simmer for a few more minutes on medium heat.
🍜 9. Serve onto bowls and add your garnish.
