Healthy Ramen Recipe

This Filipino girl grew up in a home full of love and laughter, bold flavors, and the spice of life centered around food. Then I married a man that is just as passionate about food and the adventure in it as I am. On our retirement wish list is to travel cross-country, camping, and discovering the little gems of family owned restaurants.

A couple weeks ago the craving for the warmth and spice of a good made from scratch Asian noodle soup came over me so strong. While bagging all our families produce for the week at Kroger, I saw the baby bok choy, bought it, came home and searched the webs over for inspiration. That’s what I usually do to get the base down for whatever it is I’m craving and then add and tweak things to my taste.

So the Healthy Ramen Noodle Soup was born and it was so so so good! Way better than I had expected! I think you will love it too!

I used Hokkien Stir-Fry noodles because it had very few ingredients {wheat & water}, but to make this extra healthy/gluten free/and low carb you can use zoodles {zucchini noodles}.

I cooked my chicken in a skillet with lard {lard is a healthy fat people! more on this one day!}, seasoned with salt,pepper, & garlic powder. Sliced it diagonally and added it as a topping to each bowl. I will list the toppings I used in my recipe, but you can use any toppings you’d like! Get crazy!

I sliced my boy choy in long strips. Bok choy can be hard to chew if the pieces are too big.
