usual noodle suspects


Noodles!! Few things are better or more comforting than a huge bowl of ‘em. There’s just something about twirling them around a fork, sopping up extra sauce, and inevitably getting that sauce on my face (let’s be honest!), that makes them so perfect.

I’ve always been an avid supporter of the usual noodle suspects — spaghetti, lasagna, macaroni and cheese. But despite my ever-present cold weather comfort food cravings, I’ve been trying to lighten things up a bit.

Enter my newest food friend >> udon noodles! In a recent trip to the store in search of coconut milk, I stumbled upon them — and I couldn’t be happier with my discovery. I had never heard of them before (gasp!). I may be late in venturing into the fancy noodle scene, but oh man these things are aaaa-mazing!

Throw in a pile of veggies, sautéed chicken and Thai-inspired creamy coconut red curry sauce, and we’ve got a winner! I can seriously eat an entire bowl of these in 2 seconds and not feel guilty about standing over the pot to get just one two more saucy bites.

I am in love with this recipe on so many levels.

Super quick to make, like 25 minutes from start to finish.
Makes me use up lots of veggies that are hanging around my fridge — carrots, celery, broccoli, onion. Really any veggie will do!
Pantry items, except for the udon noodles (which I might just make a pantry staple now!)
Sneakily healthy! I just know I’m doing something good for my body with all the vitamins packed into each slurp-worthy bite.

These noodles are also leftover friendly, which is a super important quality for a recipe to have in my opinion, and I can eat a whole pile of them without feeling  like crawling under my desk after lunch to take a nap. Win!
