Calling all pho fans. Our vegetarian version is light with layers of complex flavor from charred carrots and spring onions. We're going to go ahead and warn you that cooking this dish will result in your entire house smelling amazing. Cloves, fennel seed, anise, fresh Thai basil, ginger and garlic give this dish that familiar "pho" smell and flavor, but in an entirely fresh and unconventional way. Mung bean sprouts add crisp texture against the tender rice noodles and smooth, flavorful broth.

Turn the heat to high, bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes.
Step 10
Once the broth has cooked for 10-12 minutes remove from heat, strain the liquid into a pouring vessel or pitcher, discard the solids and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Step 11
Cut the charred carrot in half lengthwise and slice them thinly. Cut the Scallions (6) into thin slices. In two large serving bowls place the noodles, carrots, and spring onions. Cut the Limes (3) into quarters.
