  • Bring a separate pot of water to a boil. Remove pot from heat and add rice noodles to the water; let stand until noodles are softened, about 4 minutes. Drain water and rinse noodles under cold water.

  • Remove star anise from broth mixture.

  • Pile cold noodles into serving bowls and top with broth mixture; garnish with green onion.

Cook's Note:

Chicken or meat can be added to soup if desired.

Vegetable broth can also be substituted for the chicken broth. Using 4 cups water and 4 bouillon cubes is also a substitution.

Fresh ginger can be substituted for the ginger paste.

Pretty good but it didn't taste quite as I hoped (having eaten Pho out). The noodles could sit in the hot water a few minutes longer and - if you can tolerate it - you should double the hot sauce. And don't omit the tofu! I forgot it and this dish needs it. If I'd done all that I think it would've been perfect! Read More
