The other day, Trevor came home and said the girls should learn to like some more noodle based dishes. Now, it’s not like our girls don’t try lots of foods – we’re lucky they do! But what I really think he was saying was that HE wanted some more noodle based dishes. 🙂
Sine I have been wanting to start making soup again now that the weather has cooled slightly, I decided to make this amazing looking ramen dish I saw Half Baked Harvest making. It super easy, full of bold flavors and had ramen. What’s not to love?
So I started cooking it and oh my goodness the smells! The glorious, delicious smells! I was so excited to eat this and it did not disappoint! It’s creamy with a hint of spice and so warm and yummy. This was a super amazing find! And, if you’re short on time, I’ve linked to her recipe that has both crockpot and instant pot recipes!
Let me know if you like this as much as I did in the comments below! Happy cooking!

- Once done cooking, shred the chicken. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat. Stir in the coconut milk and spinach. Then submerge noodles in the broth. Let cook 3-5 minutes, until the noodles are soft.
