How to make Vietnamese noodles without any fake flavours in 15 minutes

DSC_0106 (2).JPG

I had Vietnamese noodles “beef pho” for dinner tonight. Normally I use beef or chicken stock to make this soup, but this time I used my new product, “SAORI 100% Natural Japanese Dashi stock“, to make it more nutritious (check my other article – super food Shiitake mushrooms) and completely naturally flavoured. If you make a natural beef or chicken stock for your soup it can take quite a long time. However, if you use my dashi stock, it tastes better , is healthier and is much faster.  This recipe takes me about 15 minutes. Put in lots of vegies in to boost your vitamins! ! AND…tonight’s dinner tasted better than a similar one I ate at a restaurant the other day.
