Vietnamese Zoodle Pho w/ Shrimp

February 15, 2017

I am continuing my foray into all things zucchini; and absolutely still loving it!! 

Last night I made Vietnamese Pho w/ Shrimp and substituted "Zoodles" for noodles. 

"Pho" is a traditional Vietnamese soup made with noodles, broth, veggies, and typically beef or chicken. 

FYI -  "Pho" is pronounced "Fa" or "Fah".

2 Tb. Ghee or Pastured Butter
1 Tb. Olive Oil
3 Full Slices of Onion - Quartered
3 Stalks of Celery - Julienne Cut
2 Carrots - Julienne Cut
2 Cloves of Garlic - Coarsely Chopped 
2 Cups Fresh Zoodles aka Zucchini Noodles 
1/3 C. Chopped Scallions
1 Small Head Baby Bok Choy - Leaves Pulled Apart and Blunt Cut At Bottom
1/3 C. Loosely Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/2 C. Mung Bean Sprouts

Several Large, Cooked Shrimp
4 C. Miso - Vegetable Broth 
1 C. Turkey Bone Stock
To Taste: Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Pepper, White Pepper
1/3 C. Ponzu Sauce


Saute the garlic, onions, celery, and carrots in the butter and olive oil. 

Add the miso stock, chicken stock, baby bok choy, and zoodles.

Cover and simmer on medium low for 15 minutes.

Season to taste with the salt, pepper, and white pepper. 

Add the scallions, cilantro, mung bean sprouts, and shrimp. 

Continue to simmer, covered, on med-low heat for another 5 minutes.

To finish - add the ponzu sauce and serve.

Table-side offer Sriracha sauce and fresh sliced jalapenos. 

Hope you enjoy.



You may replace the shrimp with Chicken and you can certainly add mushrooms (I'm allergic) or other vegetables you may like. And, of course you may omit any veggies you do not particularly care for as well. Play around with the "Pho" and make it your own.
