This easy Vegan Mushroom Ginger Pho will satisfy you craving for a warm noodle soup! This is very easy to put together an requires minimal prep. It's fairly fool-proof and the broth can be adjusted to taste. I'd highly recommend topping this off with some cilantro since it adds a nice light flavor to the dish, which contrasts well with the earthy mushroom and ginger flavors. You can also add any other veggies to this dish (see a recommended list below under Tips & Tricks)!
4 bunches (9-10oz) of dried rice or soba noodles ○ Pictured above are soba noodles
1 container (8oz) baby bella mushrooms
2 tsp fresh ginger (or 2.5 tsp ginger powder)
Fresh cilantro for topping
Sriracha for topping (optional)
8 cups (64oz) of vegetable stock, plus more if needed ○ Or 8 cups water + 3 tsp Better Than Bouillon vegetable base
2 tsp Chinese Five Spice (make your own blend with this recipe)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
Salt to taste
Place a large pot on the stove, and heat on medium.
Chop the mushrooms and grate the ginger.
Add all the broth ingredients, mushrooms, and ginger to the pot. Give it a quick stir to combine everything evenly.
Bring to a low boil, then add in the noodles.
Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the noodles are cooked through. ○ The noodles will absorb some of the liquid, so if it looks like you don't have enough broth then add some more veggie stock or water until you get to the desired level. Also add sprinkle more of each spice and taste/adjust as needed.
Once the noodles are cooked, remove the pot from heat.
Dish into a bowl and top with fresh cilantro and a drizzle of sriracha if you'd like to add some spice.
Tips and Tricks:
This is a great basic pho recipe with lots of room for experimentation. Play around with the veggie combinations next time. Try adding shaved onion, shaved carrot, tofu, corn, grape tomatoes, bok choy, spinach, or anything else you can think of! Add the veggies at the same time, before the noodles.
