Life-Changing 20-Minute Wonton Soup Recipe With Egg Noodles & Pho Broth by Donna John
I did something crazy at my favorite local pho restaurant: I didn't order pho. Instead, I tried their wonton soup with egg noodles in a pho broth. Life changing. So life changing, that I had to figure out how to make something similar for dinner at home. This easy wonton soup recipe is what I came up with. (Should we call it pho-ton soup?) Do you need wontons and egg noodles, you may ask. Yes!
If you wanted to save time on prep, you could buy pre-made pho broth from the Asian aisle of your grocery store or at your favorite Asian market. The soy sauce and fish sauce add the salt element to the soup recipe, so no salt is needed, but be sure to add some black pepper. Is this a pho broth made with marrow bones and cooked for hours and hours? No. But the flavors are amazing and you won't regret one bite. This recipe can easily be doubled (leftovers are great for lunch).
