Burmese Noodle Bowl is an simple, 30-minute take on a traditional Chinese dish
So, it’s already mid-October, how did that happen? What a perfect time full of rich colours, cozy sweaters, crunchy leaves and warm hearty meals. The best season ever! It’s the perfect time to start thinking about cosy warm bowls of soup, stew or noodles that are hearty and good for you.
This bowl of goodness is a great weeknight meal made with pantry ingredients that are not complicated or hard to find. Packed with protein and lots of good healthy stuff, it’s a 30-minute supper that will make your tummy and spirit happy.
If you love a dish with lots of texture, this is the one. A great mixture in the mouth – the long slippery noodles, sponginess of egg and the finishing crunch of peanuts. Deliciousness in one bowl.
This is a protien-packed bowl, with pieces of meat along with hard boiled egg and nuts. If you don’t want the meat (or just want to add more veggies), swap it out by adding 3 cups of spinach, or baby bok choy to steam in the broth… yum!
