Vegetable Pho


This soup is delicate yet filling, simple yet delicious. After the last fews days of over-indulging on holiday food I really needed something light and healthy. The original recipe calls for miso paste but I didn’t have any- even though I swore I checked my refrigerator to see if it was there when I was making my shopping lists the other day. It is a miso mystery! Ha! So, organic soy sauce and rice vinegar to the rescue. It was so good this way, I doubt I will use the miso paste in the future. Delicious broth, veggies, and rice noodles = a healthy and delicious dinner!
