This turkey pho recipe is unbelievably quick to put together and it tastes darn authentic. Next time you have leftover turkey, you know what to do.
Ever since I learned how to make pho at home, it’s all I could think of when I have homemade broth on hand. Who knew the famous Vietnamese noodles can be recreated in our own kitchen so easily?
Compare to the beef pho we made a while back, the differences with this turkey pho recipe are –
- The broth – I’d recommend you use a homemade turkey bone broth, which can be easily made in a slow cooker with turkey bones and turkey giblets. Not ready to make the turkey bone broth yet? No problem. Use any broth you have on hand. But you know what I’d say – homemade is always better.
- The protein – This one is obvious. Instead of beef, you use turkey meat.
- The vegetables – This part is completely flexible. I used frozen Asian stir-fry vegetables. You can choose any veggies you want.
With the above three items prepared, you’ll be able to whip up this mouthwatering turkey pho recipe in just 15 minutes, seriously! Hope you enjoy!
