Autumn Pho

Perfect for a chilly autumn day, this pho is sure to warm you up and warm your spirits as well! It’s made using kabocha, a type of winter squash also known as Japanese pumpkin. The texture and flavor of kabocha are similar to that of a pumpkin, although kabocha is exceptionally sweet. Some people describe the taste and mouthfeel as a combination of pumpkin and sweet potato.

This recipe is also packed with flavorful, nutritious ingredients, including ACAZEN, Alpinia’s 100% plant-based fibre supplement.
