This Vietnamese Pho is a beautiful, flavorful soup with an array of colorful garnishes.  Traditional Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is a favorite restaurant or take out staple that may seem too complex to make at home, but it is actually very simple to prepare so don’t be daunted by the long list of ingredients and think that it will be difficult.  The prep takes a bit of time, but the fabulous flavor makes it well worth the effort, and as you gain experience with Pho you can tailor the garnishes to those you love most!
