  1. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. When it is hot, add the garlic and ginger and sauté them until the garlic is fragrant and turning golden. Add the other spices and sauté them too to release their flavor and fragrance.
  2. After a few minutes, turn the heat down to medium-low and add the beef broth. Cover the saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, spoon out the garlic, ginger, and the spices.
  3. While you're waiting for your broth to cook, make your zucchini noodles. Use the smallest plate of a spiralizer or a julienne peeler to make thin, spaghetti-like zucchini noodles.
  4. When the broth is done cooking, add the zucchini noodles to the broth and cook them for about 4 minutes, or until they are "al dente.
  5. Remove the noodles and divide them among two bowls. (Keep the broth over heat.) Add your beef slices and pho toppings onto the zucchini noodles, except for the lime wedges.
  6. Pour the broth over the noodles, beef, and toppings. (The broth should be so hot that it cooks the beef immediately.) Squeeze the lime wedge over the soup and enjoy!


Customize this comforting paleo noodle bowl with your favorite toppings, depending on what your diet allows. Add fresh mint, sliced scallions, bean sprouts, and sliced chili peppers if you can enjoy them safely!

    This soup was delicious even without the zoodles. I thought this recipe was very easy to make.
