I don’t know why it has taken me so long to give you all the recipe to my favorite soup ever!

Spicy Kimchi Noodle Soup!

I’m not exaggerating when I say I eat this soup at least 3 times a week, every single week.  It’s fast, easy, and super tasty.  If you do not like kimchi, or have never eaten it, I think this would be a perfect recipe to try.  The kimchi flavor is not overwhelming, but adds just enough flavor to make it taste unique and delicious!

Make sure you check the ingredient label when you purchase your kimchi to ensure it is vegan.  Traditional kimchi is made with a good amount of seafood products like shrimp and squid.  I love shrimp and squid, but I prefer the taste of vegan kimchi over the traditional stuff.

FYI, Kimchi is a great health food because it is fermented.  Fermented products naturally produce good bacteria.

Yes there is a such thing as good bacteria!

This bacteria is great for gut health and can be a life saver for those of us with digestion issues.

My Rosemary Chicken with Dijon Mushroom Sauce is also a great dish to try.  My husband said this was something I should make for guests because the name sounds kind of fancy and it tastes great, but no one would ever know it was such a quick and easy dish to make!

Spicy Kimchi Noodle Soup
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable stock
  • ½ cup vegan kimchi
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce, or coconut aminos
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons (depending on your taste) sambal, or any other spicy chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 - 3 oz brown rice or white rice noodles, cooked
  • green onions, chopped
Instructions
  1. Place the water and stock in a small pot on medium low heat. Bring to a simmer and keep it simmering until you need it.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in your soup bowl and mix it around. I did not show this part in the recipe video, but if you do not stir everything around first, when you add the hot liquid the onion, garlic, and ginger powders will turn into little clumps that are very hard to dissolve. Taking a bite of a clump of garlic powder is not tasty at all! I learned this the hard way.
  3. Once you've mixed everything in your bowl, pour in the stock and water mixture. Stir and adjust seasoning with a little salt if needed. Enjoy.

Rosemary Chicken with Dijon Mushroom Sauce
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • 6 boneless chicken thighs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup shitake mushrooms, diced (or dried mushrooms that have been soaked in water overnight)
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups half and half
  • ½ cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place a pan on medium heat. Add the oil, chicken, and rosemary. Cook the chicken for about 4 – 5 minutes per side, until the chicken is browned and fully cooked. After browning one side and turning it over rub the rosemary sprigs over the browned side of the chicken to give it a light rosemary flavor (watch the cooking video to see what I mean). Do this every now and then to give it a nice rosemary flavor. Remove the chicken and rosemary from the pan and set aside.
  2. Do not clean the pan. In the same pan add the mushrooms. Add another teaspoon or two of oil if the pan seems too dry. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Add the half and half, stock, garlic powder, onion powder, and dijon. Stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  3. To serve, place 1 or 2 pieces of chicken on your plate and top with the dijon mushroom sauce.
  4. Suggested Side: Broccoli and White Rice

    I’m a fan of healthy that is actually tasty. Most people have the notion that when food is “healthy,” it will be tasteless and boring. Having the same soup more than two times per week shows how much you like it.

      I completely agree. I want to show the world that healthy is NOT boring and bland. I’m glad you can tell how much I love this soup because it really is my favorite at the moment! Thanks for visiting.

      Oh wow, you should definitely try kimchi! It is an acquired taste for sure, but if you’re an open-minded eater I think you will like it! It is tangy and a little spicy 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

    That spicy kimchi soup sounds fantastic! There is a great Korean grocer near my neighborhood and they sell all different kinds of kimchi. I haven’t tried the vegan kind, and am interested to see how the flavor differs so will definitely be looking for it next time I go there so I can try this recipe.

      Awesome! I like both versions, but for some dishes the traditional kimchi with seafood in it can overpower the other ingredients. I do hope you give the recipe a try!! Thank you

    I was actually wondering for a minute if that was chocolate in your smoothie but just saw that it’s dates that makes them dark. I would really love to try that. I just love all things smoothies.

      LOL!!! It does look like there’s chocolate in it. I was actually surprised at how dark it came out once I finished blending it. I think the dates and dark green kale made the color so dark. 🙂
