Quick Faux Pho tastes like a bowl of freshness, especially in winter during cold-flu season. The optional toppings are partly what elevate this hearty bowl of comfort.
Phở or pho (pronounced fuh) is a Vietnamese soup usually consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat – usually beef or chicken. Pho is a popular street food in Vietnam and served in restaurants around the world.
Since those following the low-carb lifestyle do not eat rice noodles, we will use our low-carb favorite noodle substitute – shirataki noodles.

NOTES: Use fettuccine or linguine shaped shirataki noodles in this dish and see how authentic it feels! We really love Pasta Zero, noodles made from chick pea flour and glucomannan powder, but they can be difficult to find.
