Thermomix Beef Noodles (Pho Bo)

June 5, 2022

When the weather gets cold – Out comes the soup

This was my first experimentation with making my own Pho. I see it everywhere and my son just loves it. SO … I tried to make my own and let me tell you, I think I did a fine job of it !! Crunchy Vegetables and melt in the mouth meat.

The other soup that we have come up with is Asian Noodle Soup with Chicken Meatballs. Very filling and very yummy. Another winner.

Of course there is our Minestrone that is – to me – the best soup out there. Full of flavour and WW Friendly!
