Gluten Free Chicken Pho (Pho Ga)

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

Quick Vietnamese soup loaded with chicken, herbs, and spices! Delicious!

I love pho! This is a hug in a bowl! It has all the good things: a multilayered broth, protein, herbs, spices, heat...and a lot of flavor! You could either spend hours making the broth, or you could do what I do: I buy it at the store! comes already made so you don't have to do the hard part! Don't you love that? have a great broth made with star anise, ginger, kelp, cinnamon, cloves and all those wonderful spices from South East Asia. It is packed with vitamin D and iodine. And, you can add whatever you want to it: shallots, mushrooms, tofu, seafood, pork, beef... The options are limitless!

Let's make it!
