I love a good Raamen bowl, especially on a winter evening. This homemade version with the warm flavors of coconut milk, curry paste and shitake mushrooms, the crunch of bok choy and snow peas along and their bright colors, makes for a both delicious and beautiful dinner. You can pick your favorite protein for this bowl: for a vegan version, use tofu, or add shredded leftover chicken or thinly sliced beef.
I remember ordering this at our local Chinese restaurant as a kid – it was so fun to
spread the plum sauce over the pancakes and then add as much of the filling as I
wanted to each pancake. This is a vegetarian version, which features crunchy
veggies, a delicious Asian sauce and tofu or chicken, for some added protein. You can feel free to swap out the tofu for chicken or another protein. I don’t have time to make my own chineese crepes, so I use warmed tortillas, but you can also make these in lettuce cups… Let each eater shmear their tortilla with their favorite teriyaki sauce, fill with the veggie filling and roll up and enjoy!
My kids love egg drop soup! This one is healthy and fresh – and tastes nothing like some of the goopy versions you may have had at a Chinese restaurant. And the best part is that you can throw this together in a few minutes while you are preparing the rest of your dinner.
