Vietnamese Noodle Soup- Pho

There is something seriously refreshing about noodle soup, sitting in the garden bowl and chopsticks at hand, tucking in and just enjoying life in the sun!

It’s not often I go full on with Asian food making the more “soup” style foods knowing in the past for them to take a long time to make BUT I’ve shortcut this and made it easy! One pot, 20mins, many meals, epicness achieved!
