Faux pho

So I decided to try to make a version of pho - a Vietnamese (I think!) soup with noodles, vegetables and bit of meat. I started with this package of soup flavouring.

I cooked the noodles separately. This is what they looked like -a pale version of spaghetti.

This is with everything in the pot. I added spinach leaves for the greenery, and chopped up some red peppers too. I had mushrooms in the fridge but forgot about them, otherwise I would have added them too.

The soup looked pretty good. It did smell spicy though.

Marks' verdict: yummy
Freda's verdict: too hot
Both of us: yucky noodles

So there won't be a next time for faux pho...
