Several years ago a friend took me to this quaint authentic Vietnamese restaurant, Pho Mac. and I fell in love with their noodle soup. It was my first time experiencing the herb combination of mint, cilantro, basil and flat leaf parsley, such a fresh combo. But that’s not all, the soup was topped with crunchy bean sprouts and jalapeno, that did it for me, whenever I go there I always get that soup.
So this dish is inspired by that soup.
The difference between their soup and my version is the addition of carrots, parsnips and toasted sesame oil.
The restaurant version of the soup was served with a spicy sweet sauce, so I created my version as well. A combination of tamari, agave, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and hot chili oil served alongside sriracha sauce.The perfect balance of heat and sweet.
I kept this version pretty simple, but you can easily add sliced mushrooms, bok choy or any other vegetable you choose.
This protein, power-packed soup will fill you and thrill you!
If you make this please share your experience with a comment below and share a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #thewholeserving, I’d love to see your version!
