Vegan Pho w/ Daikon Noodles

Vegan Pho w/ Daikon Noodles | Well and Full | #vegan #recipe

Before I get started, let me give you a little disclaimer – if you’re looking for a super authentic pho recipe, this will not be it. If you’re looking for a savory, umami, insanely delicious pho-like soup, then this recipe would be it. Of course, presenting an authentic pho recipe on a vegan blog would be, by definition of pho, impossible. So instead of using the traditional meat-based broth, this soup gets its base from shiitake mushrooms, which have a wonderfully meaty flavor and texture. Coupled with garlic, ginger, and a little bit of miso, traditional pho won’t even compare!

And then there’s the daikon noodles. This is a serious departure from the norm, but I love using vegetables in unexpected ways to mix things up (not to mention keep things healthy!) You can of course use any pasta or noodle that you like in place of the daikon. But the daikon noodles add such a delicious crunch and texture to the pho, I highly recommend using them. I made this for Ryan (who is not vegan) and he absolutely loved it. I hope that you’ll love it too! πŸ™‚

    I love spiralizing Daikon! Daikon soup was my mom’s version of “chicken noodle” when we were sick. Love the photos Sarah!
