The sweetness of the roasted potatoes and parsnips, combined with intense apple cider and mild shallots, creates a hearty and delicious soup that is guaranteed to deliver satisfying spoon after spoon.

Vietnamese Vegetable & Tofu Pho Soup

Before this recipe, I suffered from pho phobia. Not only did I say it wrong (it's pronounced "fah," not "foe"), but I also couldn't fathom how we'd bring Vietnam's national dish into our kitchens. Well, good thing I've got the Pho Queen on my side. After much research, spooning and slurping, Lisa has done it, with vegetables, tofu and rice noodles, all in an ambrosial broth infused with garlic, ginger, coriander, cinnamon and anise.. Nothing to fear here - this easy-to-make soup is pho-freakin'-nominal.
