Crazy Chicken Noodle Soup/Ramen

February 7, 2019

Author Notes: A totally yummy asian inspired chicken-heavy on the- noodle soup that works as delicious warming meal, "penicillin" and a way to clean out your fridge/cupboards with oodles of variations depending on what's available or your mood. Feel free to adjust the amount of chicken broth - depending on whether you want a soup or something closer to a crazy ramen type pasta dish. I love using left over chicken- including rotisserie- to make this soup as well as the stock. alice miller

Directions

  1. In soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add onion, carrots, celery and dried herbs let cook/sweat a few minutes with top on. Add mushrooms, stir and let cook. If it starts making a lot of noise, add a bit of chicken stock. When mushrooms have released all of their liquid, add garlic, red pepper flakes, edamame, miso, curry and cream. Stir and cook a few minutes. Add chicken. Cook a few minutes, add salt and pepper to taste. Add a bit of chicken stock if it looks dry/sticking. When it reaches a nice mush of flavor, add stock and bring to a boil. Add noodles and seaweed. The starch will thicken it nicely. Let boil until noodles are done. Serve in bowls with a healthy handful of cilantro on top- enjoy!
