What's for dinner: Simple chicken noodle soup - Asian style


Whenever I, or my roommate enter our place and see the other cooking, we know that 90% of the time we are cooking one thing: noodle soup.  Being both lovers of noodles and soup, and noodles in soup, we've become experts at creating healthy, yummy variations of this tried-and-true Asian meal.

For this dinner, I played around with some leftover ingredients I had from a previous meal to make this light, flavourful broth.  Definitely recommend this one for any chilly night!

To make, you'll need:
  • 1 packet of rice noodles, or pho noodles
  • Chicken stock
  • Mushrooms
  • Chicken breast, sliced
  • Cilantro
  • Spinach
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine




Bring 1.5 cups of water and 0.5 cups of chicken broth to a boil.  Add soy sauce, rice wine and chicken.  Cook chicken thoroughly.  Add noodles and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add mushrooms and cook for 30s.  Turn off heat and stir in spinach and cilantro. Serve immediately.  Makes 2 bowls of this:




Doesn't that just look delicious?
