Happy Hump Day and 8 days to Christmas!!!
I am so excited to share this delicious and easy noodle soup recipe with you today! I have slowly been getting sicker and sicker with a terrible cold since Sunday so I was in the hunt for a comforting and easy recipe for dinner the other day and this is totally it! You can find everything you need at your local grocery store! Riley claimed it as his second favorite noodles he’s ever had, which says a lot cause this kid looooves butter noodles! I always bring a little lunch side portion for him to try when I make something I know he hasn’t had before because I want to continue to expand his very developed palette. You can tell he’s over the constant paparazzi shots. #sorrynotsorry
So I didn’t take a picture of all the ingredients I used, like I said, I’m sick so just imagine a really awesome pic of all the ingredients on the same spot on my counter that I have taken all of the ones before, amazing right?! HA!
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 6 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 block tofu, diced
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce or more depending on your soy sauce likes (I added a little splash extra)
- 3 packages instant Japanese noodles- discard flavor packets!- I used Sapporo Ichiban chicken
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 1 cup chopped or matchstick carrots (optional)
- 3 chopped chives
- Pepper to taste
- Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large stockpot or Dutch over over medium heat. Add 4 cloves minced garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring frequently, about 1-2 minutes.
- Add tofu and soy sauce and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add broth and 4 cups water.
- Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes.
- Stir in noodles until loosened and cooked through, about 3 minutes.
- Stir in spinach, carrots and chives until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
- Top with pepper and 2 cloves minced garlic and keep on low until ready to serve.
I hope you all try this! It was 2 dinners for us and 2 lunches for Riley, woot woot! Easy and affordable #winwin. 🙂 Get the original recipe, here!
Best of luck as you finish all that is on your list before Christmas and remember to spend time with the people that matter most and give back when you can. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
