If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should) then you are well aware of the mass amount of ramen I consume on a daily basis. While it is a lazy meal it doesn’t have to be a complete lack of nutrients if you add the right ingredients. For those of us who see that thing called Winter IRL instead of just on GoT it also comfort food season.
I hit up Prevention for a healthier recipe to the under a dollar pack of noodle dinner that serves 4 (aka one of me.)
What you need:
2 Tbsp sesame oil, divided
4 scallions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ Tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
4 c water
3⅓ Tbsp sweet white or chickpea miso paste
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
8 c loosely packed fresh baby spinach
4 oz dried Chinese noodles, crushed
1 sm white onion, diced
2 c sliced button mushrooms
½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp fresh basil, finely chopped
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
You can swap some ingredients too, I went to for seaweed instead of spinach.
1. HEAT 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
2. ADD scallions, garlic, and ginger; cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add water, miso paste, and soy sauce; bring to a boil. Add chicken, spinach, noodles, onion, mushrooms, red pepper flakes, basil, sea salt, and pepper; cover and bring to a boil again then reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender. Serve warm.
