This dish takes less than 30 minutes to make, includes all staples you probably already have on hand, and is high in protein with gut-healing goodness to warm you up on those cold days or bring comfort on those not-so-great days.
I speak of go-to meals often, a list of 3-5 meals that you always have ingredients for and you never get sick of. This is one of my go-to meals.
Without further ado, here ya go!
1 pound Cubed or chopped chicken breast or thighs ( if vegan, use one block tofu or skip this)
2 tbsp Red Curry Paste
2-3 cups Bone Broth
1/3 cup Canned Coconut Milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 clove garlic
1 tsp minced ginger ( or more if you love it)
2 cups frozen stir fry vegetables ( I get mine from Costco)
2 blocks brown rice ramen
In a wok or pan, heat oil, once warm, add your raw protein. If you choose to make this vegan, skip this portion or add tofu to bump up the protein content.
After 5 – 8 minutes, add stir fry frozen vegetables. I use the massive bag from Costco and always have these bad boys on hand. Cook until meat is done and vegetables are cooked through.
Meanwhile, heat up a pot with water and cook Ramen until done.
Once cooked through, add 2 cups or more of chicken bone broth. If vegan, you can use vegetable broth. I usually use 2-3 cups depending on the day.
Now add in 2 tbsp of red, yellow, or green curry paste, I usually go straight for red curry because I LOVE me some spice. And 1/3 cup of coconut milk from the can. Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer for 15 minutes.
Here’s where you have a choice, you can either add in the cooked ramen and let the ramen cook through to serve. OR, you can follow the above instructions and already have the ramen cooked. This way, you control the portion of your carbs.
MACRO PRO TIPS: I always cook ramen on the side and add to my bowl. I do this because it allows me to know how many carbs I am eating in addition to my bowl. That way I have the clarity to make sure I am either eating enough or not too much.
If you are tracking macros or learning about what’s in your food and how it affects you, I highly recommend you do this as well.
