Have you ever watched a show and “Oh I have to try that”? Well that is what happened to me last week. I will not take credit for this recipe as I saw this on YouTube. Asian at home. You have to check her out. This is a healthier version of ramen noodles. Anytime I know and control what I put in, makes me happy.
You can really have fun with this. You pick the protein, the spice, the flavour, vegetable, the noodle and the next time something completely different. This is a great way to use leftovers. You can make it as healthy as you like or need. Lower smart point proteins like shrimp, less noodles more vegetables. You choose what you like.
My first version was vegetable broth 1/2 cube, 1/2 a small roasted chicken breast, spinach baby carrots sliced thinly, broad rice noodles cooked,salt, pepper, dried rosemary and oregano and a few drops of hot sauce. When ready to use, you pour boiling water, fill and shake. For my first try, not bad but lacked a little flavour and heat for my taste.
Of course I tried again. I changed the noodle to capellini, the protein to black bean, carrots became shredded carrots, spinach became kale, spices were a creole mix, and sriracha chili sauce.
