Simple Vegetarian Pho Recipe

Vegetarian Vietnamese Soup

Pho is one of my favorite soups, but it can be a long and arduous process to create.

A simple vegetarian alternative to this Vietnamese soup takes the essentials of this beloved broth, but greatly reduces the time needed.

If desiring protein in your pho, pan-fry tofu slices and add them at the same time as the vermicelli noodles.
