Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup (Gluten Free!)

Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

I’m really working on making more diverse recipes in terms of type of cuisine (ie by region.) It doesn’t come easily to me, since Italian-American cooking is my comfort blanket.

When Pacific Foods sent me three of their Soup Starters, my eyes lit up when I saw “Chicken Pho.” What an easy way to make a spiralized Vietnamese dish!

Pho = ‘fuh‘ phonetically, by the way.

Pacific Foods creates their Soup Starters to save people time and money by offering the broth for a tasty soup, already infused with the necessary flavors. Saving time and planning, especially during the holidays, is a win!

Directly from their site:

Have ingredients here and there but don’t know what to make? Let the inspiration flow with Pacific soup starters. Our bold soup bases capture all the depth and complexity of your favorite Vietnamese, Thai and Mexican classics. Just add a pinch of this and a little bit of that.Β

They were right. This soup took NO time at all to make and the best part? This Chicken Pho base is gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, soy-free, wheat-free, yeast-free…. and organic!

The ingredients? Organic Chicken Broth (Water, Organic Chicken, Organic Spices, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Onion Powder), Organic Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Spice Extracts, Organic Lime Oil and Organic Rosemary Extract.

Making this soup was sinfully easy. I brought the soup base to a boil, added in some scallions, cilantro, pepper, chicken, and zucchini noodles. I let the noodles soften (took about 2 minutes) and then I slurped it up!

This soup is light, refreshing and filling. I combatted the limey-ness of the Soup Starter base with some water to create the perfect pho flavoring. It’s low-cal, low-carb and low-fat.

I can’t wait to experiment with their other Soup Starters!

Do you have any other time saving tricks when cooking?

    Sounds delicious, Ali! Note: Your ingredients list omits the zucchini. Oops!

    I wanted to print the recipe to a PDF file, so I could save it on my iPad, but the “Print” button isn’t responding. Guess I’ll try copying and pasting.

    I may try this with some Better Than Buoillon chicken base. I know it won’t have the same flavor as the soup starter, but I keep BTB on hand, now that I’ve started making soup in the crockpot on the weekends.

  2. You are my noodle queen, I’m always amazed by your recipes girl!

  3. Joanne :

    This soup makes adding a few ethnic flavors to your meal SO easy!! Awesome. And total comfort food.

  4. Love how clean this soup looks and sounds!

  5. This looks so good I think I’ll make it for lunch today. I have a cooked chicken breast in the fridge to use up. Mmmm. Can’t wait to try this!

  6. Nat :

    This recipe looks delicious, but the Pho base isn’t sold in Australia! I will use regular chicken stock, but what else would you suggest adding?

  7. I only saw this link? [yumprint-recipe id=’108′
