Thai Shrimp Noodle Bowl from Simply Whisked for Made to be a Momma.
Months and months ago, my mom mentioned to me that she wanted to go to Panera for their noodle bowls – or whatever they’re actually called on the menu there. Time went by, and we never got around to buying shrimp. But when I saw this new ginger-infused broth at the grocery store, I figured it would be the perfect base for the dish. So, I picked up the rest of the ingredients I needed, and we made finally made the noodle bowls.
I originally intended for them to be more of a soupy, broth-y style dish, but it morphed into this delicious, one-pot noodle bowl instead. Happy “mistakes” are definitely the best kind anyway, right? So we made it a few more times, and I swear, it got better each time.
You can easily use a different style broth to make this recipe – maybe a seafood stock or a vegetable broth – but I would suggest adding a little lime juice and extra ginger when you add the broth, just to enhance the flavors a bit.
This Thai shrimp noodle bowl is going to be your new favorite, one-pot meal. I promise. It’s quick, tastes fantastic and it’s easy to clean up. There isn’t much better for a weeknight meal. Is there?
