Tofu Phở (Vietnamese Soup)

Phở may be one of my favorite soups! It's a flavor bomb of deliciousness and you can crank up the heat with as much Sri Racha as you like :) Once again, adapted from our friends over at The Food Republic, this is a "cheater Phở" - easy and quick to make!

Serves 2-4.


  • 4oz of Asian rice noodles
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallion
  • 1/2 bell pepper, julienne
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • Cilantro
  • Tofu, fried crispy
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1-2 tbsp Nước mắm
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • Dried shrimp
  • Sriracha
  • Hoisin Sauce
  1. Prep the rice noodles by placing them in hot (not boiling water) until soft. Then set aside
  2. In a medium saucepan, add the broth, Nước mắm, bay leaf, and 5 spice simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Remove the bay leaf, and add in the mushrooms, and let simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Ladle into a bowl and add the rice noodles, forming a bed. Then add all the vegetables and tofu on top. Garnish with the cilantro and dried shrimp.
