Here is a new recipe to try! If you are a fan of pho give this one a go! You’re making chicken pho, but with zoodles instead of rice noodles.
This recipe is great for the cold weather when you want to warm up or just want some comfort food. It’s easy to make and is perfect for meal prep and packing lunch.
I recommend eating this soup just like you do traditional pho with a soup spoon and chopsticks. Otherwise, the zoodles can be a bit of a pain with just a spoon.
As you can see in the header image, I like to pack the zoodles separate and add them right before I chow down! That way you don’t get soggy zoodles….no one likes a soggy zood! 🙂
Chicken Zoodle Pho
Recipe by: Jamie Boden at My Beautiful Ideal
- 2 tbsp, olive oil
- 3/4 cup, celery, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 4 cups, chicken broth
- 4 cups, water
- 1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed and diced
- 4-5 cups, zoodles
- In a large soup pot, over medium-high heat, heat the oil.
- Add celery and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and onion powder. Cook for 5-6 minutes.
- Add broth and water. Heat to a boil.
- Add chicken to the pot, reduce heat, and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- At this point, your broth is ready to go. Only add your zoodles when you are ready to eat the pho. Make sure the broth is hot, add the zoodles, and let sit for 2-3 minutes.
Tips: Top with Sriracha, jalapeno, cilantro…basically anything (that is on protocol) that you would put on pho!
