Do you love Vietnamese food? Here’s your chance to cook your own. And what better dish to start with than pho, the popular noodle soup? Pho is high in iron, low in fat, and contains fiber. This recipe also includes hot red chiles, which contribute a metabolism boost.

Though this recipe is vegetarian, you can also make pho with beef, chicken, or shrimp.
