Pho Noodles Soup with Shrimp and Fish

Pho Noodles Soup with Shrimp and Fish
  • Prep 20 min

My daughters, like so many other kids, love all kinds of pasta. Since they were very little, I tried to invent sauces for noodles by blending pure vegetables. One time we went to a Vietnamese restaurant, and the kids, who were used to eating some green 'things' on top of their pasta, found these noodles delicious and fun to eat. I love this style because it is served with a lot of fresh vegetables, which can always be varied and added to others you have (sometimes I change my recipe and add cilantro, avocado, tall greens or golden onions in butter). Enjoy this deliciousness with everyone at home! MORE + LESS -
