I think I’ve mentioned before (probably a million times) that I am the biggest fan of Cuisine at Home Magazine. Their recipes never disappoint! I have a bookcase with years and years of Cuisine at Home. I have the hardest time throwing them out, so basically I rip out all of the recipes I like or want to try (which is almost all of them) and I’ve been sticking them in binders. Pretty soon that same bookshelf will be full of binders of Cuisine at Home recipes.
This soup was so good and unbelievably quick and easy to make. I love miso soup on its own but this gets an extra punch from the ramen noodles, classic asian vegetables & rotisserie chicken. The rotisserie chicken almost didn’t make it to the pot! We dug in, almost forgot how good those grocery store chickens are. 😉
Anyway, this was perfect to throw together after work. It took almost no time and it filled us up just right. Plus! It’s low in calories. What more could you ask for?
