For a printable version of this recipe, please visit In a world gone mad, one soup stands above all others. This week on Healthy Helpings TV, by viewer request, host Michelle Koen presents another dish from Viet Nam. A personal favorite with our staff at GNMHealth, we present to you: Pho! Pho is a succulent, assemble-it-yourself, a la carte kind of soup, not too far removed from, say Mongolian Hot Pot. The flavors are fresh and can be varied to each diner's taste. Aside from broth, the main ingredients are thinly sliced meat, rice noodles and a variety of vegetables and fresh herbs for garnishing. So, whip up a pot and call your friends for some Pho!
