Lime – A squirt from a lime wedge usually does the trick with minimal amount of carbs
Sriracha – It’s delicious, I know. But watch your portioning: there’s 1 gram of sugar per teaspoon, so it is effortless to go overboard on carbs if you are a fan of the rooster sauce or like it super spicy!
Chili Garlic Paste – The brand I use (Huy Fong) that is available at most restaurants has less than 1 gram of sugar and reads 0 total carbs on the nutrition label. Better option to make it spicy on a keto diet.
Thai Basil – Super aromatic, this is a lovely herb for any soup. Plus its low carb!
Cilantro – Have at it! This herb is keto compliant.
Hoisin Sauce – Not keto friendly! It’s chalk full of sugar! Stay away.
Veggies – Bean Sprouts, Jalapeno, Mushrooms, Onion, Scallion, Broccoli are favorites for pho. Use what you like, just be sure to track the carbs for whatever you add. (My low carb veggie list can help you with that!)
Meat – A-OK on keto. Select a traditional cut of meat or get creative! Up to you!
