A Super Bowl of Mulligatawny Noodle Soup

Want to know what a no-brainer is? It’s me participating in the JSL Foods Fortune Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge. Already a lover and consumer of Chef Yaki’s healthy wholesome products it just makes sense to be in the mix stirring the pot. Plus the challenge involves noodles and soup. After my husband and my children and my grandchildren…noodles and soup are next in line of things that I love.

Soup Time

Fortune Noodle products are developed with a focus on flavor, noodle texture, 4 simple ingredients and convenience. They are sure to inspire both authentic Asian and fusion recipes. Today, I am featuring a nutritious, winter-warmer-upper soup made easy with these versatile noodles.

Indian in origin, Mulligatawny soup is a creamy chicken soup flavored with curry and apples. Traditionally it calls for rice, but I switch out the rice for wholesome udon noodles and boost the healthfulness and spice with a bit of turmeric. Husband, daughter and son-in-law approved I like to call it my Souper Bowl of soup.

This soup could not be easier to prepare. Simply chop, sauté and simmer and you will have the most delicious and healthy bowl of soup in about 20 minutes. Yes, you can use lite coconut milk, if you prefer, and yes I use leftover cooked chicken or pick the meat from a deli roasted chicken for extra easy prep.

Mulligatawny Noodle Soup

1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil

1 cup chopped onion (1 medium)

1 cup shredded carrots (2 carrots)

2 stalks celery, chopped (include the leaves)

1 (7.27 oz) package Fortune Udon Noodles Chicken

2 teaspoons curry powder

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

2-3 cups diced cooked chicken

1 crisp apple, peeled and diced

4 cups (32 oz. carton) low sodium chicken broth

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or cilantro

2 green onions, thinly sliced

In a large pot or Dutch oven melt butter or coconut oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery; stir and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until onions begin to soften. Stir in Fortune flavor packet, curry powder, turmeric and black pepper. Add chicken, apples and broth. Turn up heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Add udon noodles and coconut milk. Cook, stirring to separate noodles, for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Ladle into serving bowls. Garnish each serving with a sprinkle of herbs and green onions. Serves 6

Two Roads, a Recipe & a Re-Blog

I published this blog one year ago today. While I prefer to bring you new content I think this is worth repeating.

Memorial Day

As always this page is dedicated to my son, but today my father, too. The two best heroes any girl could ask for.

Before we get to the food let’s just take a moment to reflect on what the weekend is really about. God bless America, our fallen Veterans and their families. I hope you are gathering with your dearest friends and family this Memorial Day weekend.

Jezebel Salsa

Jezebel Salsa

Let’s continue on this path of Two Roads and A Recipe. This week we are making salsa. Not just any old tired tomato salsa, but Jezebel salsa. Jezebel??? Yes, Jezebel. You may have heard of the old southern Jezebel sauce typically served over cream cheese and crackers. It is a combination of pineapple preserves, apple jelly, dry mustard and horseradish; a favorite at church suppers and Jr. League cookbooks. My salsa is a fresh pineapple version of that sauce made easy and delicious with the addition of Saucy Mama Apricot Ginger Mustard. It packs a sweet heat that really compliments the pineapple and other fresh ingredients. This salsa is perfect served with grilled pork tenderloin marinated overnight in Saucy Mama Pacific Rim Ginger Dressing or if you want to travel a different road and just hungry for a snack….go ahead and try it over cream cheese and crackers.
