This Vietnamese dish is delicious by itself and has been my stand alone meal of choice for years.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all broth ingredients in a large pot.
  2. Heat on high until mixture comes to a rolling boil.
  3. Reduce to low and let simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, separate 'bowl' ingredients into either 2 or 4 bowls.
  5. Once broth is sufficiently simmered bring back to a boil and ladle on top of ingredients in bowls.
  6. Add into your own bowl whatever from the add in list you like, to taste. Adding more Sambal, Sriracha, jalepenos or chili oil will make it more spicy while adding more soy or Hoisin will make it more salty. Squeeze lemon into bowl and discard lemon after.
  7. Enjoy.
