The result of this awful 3 mile traffic doom is a girl running up 3 flights of stairs to put together a dinner ready in under 15 minutes. I know, I know... you all think I spend an hour prepping glorious dinners every night. However, the harsh reality is that most nights my dinners consist of egg sandwiches, kitchen sink salads and miso soups. (I know your jealous of my life).

|pre-washed kale rocks my world!|
I quickly softened the red onion, added the BBQ pork to heat.
Added the broth/oyster sauce to heat. Once hot, I added a bunch of chopped kale and a minute later the rice noodles and sriarcha sauce. Within 10 minutes I had a steaming bowl of hot and spicy soup!!!
Now I fully admit that this was nowhere near as good as the real Pho soup. I am pretty sure the broth and Thai Basil with bean sprouts is what makes it so good! BUT this was a great alternative that calmed the evil beast that lives in my brain when I am hungry!!
One of my favorite things about these 10 minute soups is that the possibilities are endless! You can add almost any veggie, protein (chicken, tofu, beef) and change up the spices and broths to suit your cravings.
Have fun with it and calm your inner food demon by having dinner ready before you can even place an order online!
