Cooking for Kids: Noodle Soup

0

February 10, 2017 by Sarah

This is what we’ve been eating a lot these days for lunch. It’s easy and can be pulled together in such a variety of different ways. I often get in little ruts with cooking, especially lunch, and then I remember that my kids are usually pretty simple in what they like to eat. They like soup and they love noodles. And on our recent stretches of cold, rainy days, I’ve been a fan too!

I thought I’d share to spark some ideas if anyone out there, with kids or not, is feeling a little stuck too.

I always have chicken broth in my freezer that I make from all the roast chickens I make. I’ll try to share how I do it soon. I boil some noodles in the pot I’m using first, drain them, and then heat up the broth. I pull out any cooked veggies I might already have, or I’ll chop some up and cook it in the broth. This time I also had chopped green onion and I happened to have roast chicken.

Noodles go in the bowl.

Then the broth.

Add the veggies, and voila, lunch!  I’ve been loving this because there are endless combinations. Last week I did it with bok-choy from the farmer’s market and sliced hardboiled egg as the protein. You can use thick noodles or thin. Spinach, kale, any cooked meats you might have.

My favorite is eating it with kimchi, it adds a spiciness to the broth that is so good.

Noodle Soup

This is more of a choose your own adventure than a recipe.

Broth- chicken, veggie, beef.
Protein- Cooked meats, hardboiled egg, fried egg, tofu
Vegetable- Broccoli, bok-choy, spinach, kale, chard, green onions
Noodles- any kinds that you enjoy in a soup

Heat things up and put them in a bowl. And eat. And enjoy.
