Guys.

We need to talk about 30 minute Daikon and Zucchini Noodle Pho.

It’s heartwarming, it’s perfect for the blisteringly cold winter months ahead, and it’s one of those things you can make after a long day of work without having to head to your favourite takeout joint.

Yes, pho really is that easy to make if you have the right spices!

And the TOPPINGS.

OMG YOU GUYS THE TOPPINGS.

Whenever I go to any restaurant where you get to pick your toppings, everyone laughs at me for getting too many. Like, I can’t help it that I like vegetables and sauces that much. Why make them all available if you’re not allowed to have them ALL?

Daikon and Zucchini Noodle Pho

Well, this Daikon and Zucchini Noodle Pho is one of those meals where it’s rather acceptable to pick ALL OF THE TOPPINGS.

Not quite like my chicken shawarma fries or burrito bowls where you kinda have to limit yourself past a certain point before it just gets to be too weird, or too many mixtures of flavours.

But this pho. Oh, the endless options.

I’m talking red chilies, mint, basil, cilantro, watermelon radish, bean sprouts, scallions, lime juice, extra soy sauce.

Just gimme all of it.

The umami, rich taste of the broth, this is the perfect late fall meal.

Yes, I cheated a bit by making an *almost* vegetarian version, but I know so many people with dietary restrictions in my life that I figured a vegan-friendly broth would be appreciated. And it’s so much quicker to make, without compromising on the authentic taste you crave with a light pho broth.

And I should mention it’s practically a cold curer.

You know we’re entering cold and flu season right? I’m just gonna be hiding over here under my giant duvet with Netflix on standby. You know, just in case…

Well, unfortunately this weekend won’t be mine to waste away in bed, but that’s because I have my grad party!!! I know, the celebrations around this milestone seem to be never-ending. It’s like my birthday all over again with multiple different parties, dinners and outings. It’s hard to get people together these days, and I’m not complaining.

All the more party for me.

Basically, I’ll be preparing for an extra special weekend filled with a giant fall tapas board, special gin and tonics and lots of finger food. Now I just need to decide if I wanna throw on some red or fuchsia lipstick. Decisions, decisions.

Anyway, I don’t need to tell you that I’ll be needing a bit of a reboot after some party time this weekend. Maybe I’ll finally give meatless Monday a try with this pho?

I think so…

    Fantastic idea. I always ask for more veggies and less noodles when I order pho or ramen. I do like my extra veggies, as well as all the toppings.
