It might technically be spring but seeing as Melbourne likes to play fast and loose with sticking to the seasons, so will I. My first week back on pasta and here I am with this flavour bomb of a bowl of deliciousness.
You cannot possibly underestimate the warming, healing and happiness power of a good soup on a cold day. I’m probably making at least 1 soup a week at the moment and filling my freezer with tasty things for cold days when cooking is just beyond me. Yeah even people like me who spend all their time, thinking about, writing about and cooking food can’t be stuffed sometimes. Make your way through this tasty little collection this winter for happy bellies and warm hands.
I was going to call this chicken noodle soup, because any short thicker style pasta will work. But, I love it with orecchiette the best so let’s give those little ears of pasta a starring role in the recipe name. They deserve it.
This week has been full of fun things with some great new recipe son the blog, naturally I’ll be including them in this weeks meal plans! One of them is my favourite thing I’ve made in a long time because it uses one of my favourite ingredients… noodles!
This noodle soup is totally a Japanese Thai hybrid thing, and it’s amazing. Like all my noodle, soup, and curry dreams coming true.
My new thing is using curry pastes and a little stock or coconut cream to create the flavour and sauce. It’s so quick and easy and packs a huge flavour punch! You can make your own paste and freeze in portions or keep in the fridge if you plan on using it quickly, or just buy one. So many options to make your life tasty, healthy and easy.
I love spaghetti and meatballs. I love Asian food. I also love green vegetables. Therefore, this dish is everything to me because it has all those things. Oh and chilli and sesame and they’re always my go to flavours. This is basically my heaven.
The Burmese style curry noodles are so versatile and full of flavour. They’re a take on a dish that usually involves noodles with a meat sauce and your favourite toppings. So sort of like a Burmese version of spag bol! Sort of haha. This version involves a mushroom rather than meat based sauces but I’ve included instructions for a variation using chicken and one using prawns because variety is the spice of life and all that jazz (also I couldn’t choose just one version).
