Daikon Tofu Pho

  • 4 c. vegetable broth
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced & divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp chinese five spice
  • 1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1/4 lb. rice noodles
  • 1 block firm tofu, cut into thin rectangles
  • 4-5 leaves bok choy, white stems chopped & separated from chopped leafy greens
  • 1 medium carrot, thinly julienned
  • 1 medium daikon radish, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced


  • fresh bean sprouts (optional)
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped scallions
  • basil leaves
  • mint leaves (optional)
  • jalapeño, thinly sliced (seeds removed for less spice)
  • lime wedges
  • Sriracha
  • Soy Sauce
  • Hoisin sauce (optional)


  1. Begin by preparing the broth. Add the vegetable stock and water to a medium-large pot along with the onion, garlic, ginger, sriracha, chopped scallions, and five spice.
  2. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat, cover with a lid, and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare your tofu by adding it to a steamer, either a pot fitted with a grate and lid and filled with 2 inches of boiling water.
  4. While the tofu is steaming, sauté the carrot, daikon, pepper, and white parts of the bok choy in a skillet with sesame oil.
  5. Cook the vegetables for 5-7 minutes and lightly season with soy sauce and dash of black pepper. Finally, add the leafy greens of the bok choy at the end, just cooking long enough to wilt the leaves.
  6. Once the tofu has steamed, use the boiling water to cook the noodles by adding the noodles and hot water to a large bowl. Cover the bowl with a lid and allow it to sit for 2 minutes. Stir, cover, and let rest for 2 minutes before draining and rinsing with cold water.
  7. Bring the water to a boil, and then add the rice noodles.
  8. Divide the broth evenly into serving bowls, and add in the noodles,sautéed vegetables, tofu, and desired toppings.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
