Having coeliac disease means that most convenience foods are out of the question - especially when you add other allergies and intolerances on top of that!
Luckily for me, I was a pretty fussy kid and didn't have too many convenience foods that I actually ate, however, as fussy as I was - I still loved to "share" my Mum's noodle soup from this authentic Asian restaurant.
"Share" because Mum would always order it for herself (after asking me if I wanted my own and receiving a solid no) and I'd end up eating half of it. If it was just for me, it would go uneaten (because let's be honest... fussy Kristy only wanted to noodles and not the dumplings which Mum loved) but if Mum had it? I'd happily eat hers.
This recipe was inspired by that noodle soup, however, the reason I first made it was actually because of Jesse. He joked one night that he just wanted ramen for dinner and I took that joke and ran with it - turning a "lazy food" (according to Jesse) and turning it into something extraordinary.
Now it's a dinner we eat all the time and I even make it up for lunches in the wintertime as it's the perfect thing to make in advance and enjoy later. All you have to do is add all of your ingredients, have a separate jar or container of stock and heat and eat when you're ready for it. Whether you put it in a jar (which I did only because it's prettier) or a bowl, it's a delicious and easy meal that everyone will love.
Best of all, though? It's the perfect way to clean out the fridge and sneak some extra veggies in. Jesse will happily eat a bowl full of veggies without even realising it whenever I make this soup - and I bet even fussy kids will happily slurp them up too ;)
So let me share the recipe with you! >>
