Most of you know, I’m expecting our third child. Annnnytime now. Thanks to the magical ability of scheduling posts, I’ve set this recipe as my last post until I’ve found my groove again. I’ll still be updating social media up until the baby’s arrival.
Who knows, he may have already joined our family by the time this post is live!(he hasn’t) I wish you all good health, good times, and good meals in the meantime.
On to the recipe!
As a kid (and a broke, young adult) I loved ramen. Of course, I’m talking the cheap “chicken flavor” ramen noodles you’d buy for maybe 25 cents (has the price even gone up since then?). Now, I wouldn’t go near the stuff. And other than the word ramen, this soup has nothing in common with what I used to eat. This ramen is full of REAL food, REAL flavor, and REAL nutrients.
- 2 tsp avocado oil
- 1 TB Nightshade-Free Curry Powder (follow AIP notes for those in the elimination stage)
- 1½ cups coconut cream
- 2½ cups bone broth
- 1-inch fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
- 1 TB Lemongrass Paste
- ½ tsp fish sauce
- 6 oz kelp noodles (half a bag), rinsed and drained well
- 2 chicken breasts (remove skin for this recipe), sliced evenly
- Flaky sea salt, to taste
- In a large pot, heat oil over medium-low heat. Stir in Nightshade-Free Curry Powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to one minute.
- Add coconut cream, bone broth, grated ginger, Lemongrass Paste, and fish sauce. Stir to combine. Raise heat to medium and bring mixture to a gentle simmer. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add the kelp noodles and chicken slices to the fragrant broth. Bring to a simmer and lower the heat. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
- Check seasoning and ladle into soup bowls and serve with fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
This ramen was gobbled up by everyone at the table. In fact, The Mister asked that I make it again for his birthday (in December, it’s never too early to plan) without chicken as a side to go along with Perfect Scallops. A birthday dinner request for one of my recipes is the highest compliment in our home.
