Vegan Pho (Vietnamese Noodle Soup)

This is a Pho recipe my husband made up...so delicious and comforting but still light and refreshing! Would also be good with little cubes of tofu! If you use whole spices instead of ground, crack them and place them in a nut bag in the soup until ready to serve. To serve you can add some Hoisin and/or sambal olak.
