There was a hint about a giveaway coming up soon in this last post and I’m pretty excited about this one because it’s from one of my favorite natural foods companies, Edward & Sons! They contacted me recently about trying out a newer product of theirs and wanted to share it with my readers too.

Curry bouillon! If you’ve been reading a while, you may remember that I hosted a chick’n and beef flavored bouillon cube giveaway earlier this year and this one is just as delicious, with a hint of oriental mystery.

Have you ever cooked with curry? It’s a flavor that I had never really gotten into only due to lack of knowledge or experience and this was a great chance to see what it was really all about. For some reason I kept thinking that the yellow curry would be really delicious as a ramen base and set to work on this one evening shortly after my first CSA box with the equally intriguing tatsoi. The yellow curry is mild in spiciness but high in flavor.

This soup evolved over two or three trial runs to become a glorified but just-as-easy-to-make-when-drunk AND healthier AND tastier version of ramen. I won’t say it will prevent your hangover but it has prevented me or two for me recently. But it won’t give you a worse one  if you eat before passing out following a night of raucous fun.

Yellow Curry Ramen with Greens

Serves one

Ingredients

  • 1 package of ramen noodles, flavor packet tossed aside
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Edwards & Sons yellow curry cubes
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • Handful of tatsoi (or bok choy)
  • cilantro and chopped green onions to garnish

Directions

  1. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Once water is bubbling, add two unwrapped yellow curry cubes and the minced garlic to the water and stir.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium high and add the noodles. Simmer for two minutes, using a spoon to break up the noodles.
  4. Add the tatsoi and stir, cooking for one additional minute.
  5. Remove from heat and add cilantro and green onions as desired.

Now that you’ve read the recipe and are thoroughly intrigued, how about that giveaway?
