“Faux” Chicken Pho

The traditional pho takes hours to make, and, honestly, who has hours to make dinner? This version comes together quickly and has all the deep, rich flavors you would expect in a traditional recipe. The broth simmers for only 30 minutes, and the addition of rich miso, lemongrass and hoisin add tremendous flavor. Perfect for a rainy winter night, or to chase away a cold.
