Fall hit the East Coast pretty hard over the weekend with some cold rain and tons of wind. I started to feel that itch in the back of my throat— you know the one, right before a cold starts. So I ran to wholefoods to grab some bone broth for my favorite cold-weather pick-me-up.
Traditional pho is packed with so many healing ingredients. This is a modern take on the ancient dish, but healing nonetheless! Bone broth adds a ton of protein to your meal while reducing inflammation and building the lining of your gut with collagen. Grated ginger and mint pack a ton of flavor while helping to soothe any bellyaches and clear out nasal passages.
I created this dish all in my half-gallon stasher bag, which is great because there's almost no cleanup and I can store it in the fridge for the next day.
*Please note that while stasher is great for carefully storing and feeding liquids like soup, it’s not recommend to take on the go.*
