Coconut Ramen Noodle Soup

Who loves Ramen Noodles? Or I guess the question to ask is: “Who doesn’t love Ramen Noodles?

I remember I used to dine on this stuff regularly when I was in college but I ended up giving it up because of the unhealthy sodium-rich flavor packets.  However, today I found myself craving the stuff when my boyfriend and I were coming back from the pool.

Luckily, I found a healthy recipe on Motherthyme for Coconut Ramen Noodle Soup which I decided to make for the first time today (without using the packet).

The soup was very tasty and easy to make. Luckily, I had all of the ingredients in my fridge and pantry already so I didn’t have to do a Publix run. I was very pleased with this dish. I loved the flavor of the coconut broth and will definitely be using it as a base for future dishes. Plus I like the fact that I can now have a healthier version of one of my favorite college meals!!
