Hi there MadeByGirl! I'm Jen from Pretty Eats serving up a fun and easy take on one of my favorite dishes, Pho.  As we approach the last days of Summer (can you believe it?) this piping hot bowl of rich broth offers up a great way to highlight summer herbs & vegetables. Adapt your pho ingredients to what looks great at the farm stand or what happens to be popping out of your garden. The cool greens and whites of this dish are a blank canvas for seasonal cooking at its best. Don't forget the hot sauce, nothing like a little spice to cool down on a summer day!

 Summer Pho 

Ingredients: (serves 2)
 • 1 chicken breast, poached or grilled, sliced
 • 1 quart high quality chicken stock
 • 2 c rice noodles, cooked according to directions
