Plate Presentation

Nothing says delicious and I put a lot of thought into a basic noodle dish more than a unique ceramic painted noodle bowl.  This one even has a place to hold chop sticks!  Use a decorative bowl to serve your pho and place quartered limes, fresh basil or cilantro on the side!  If you like some heat add some sliced jalapenos.

Budget Tips

Purchase a bulk pack of tofu when on sale or get a club pack size at Costco if you can then freeze the extra tofu.  Tofu holds up for months and freezes easily.

Use vegetable bouillon.  Bouillons cost less than liquid broths and one container yields more products.

Storage Recommendations

The pho once made can be stored in a food container to enjoy for lunch or a second meal within the next couple days.

It's best not to freeze but you can freeze the extra tofu which holds up well.

What to do with left over's or extra product?

Store the extra vegetables to snack on or make another soup or salad.  You can freeze the extra tofu.  If you use bouillon base this already stores well as opposed to liquid broth which needs to be used in 7 days once opened.
