Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Asian Noodle Soup with Beef

This week, I craved RAMEN.  If you haven’t yet tried the incredible ramen craze that is sweeping the nation, it’s time.  It’s truly a treat, and a savory dish that will leave you craving more.  Hmm.. Thinking, maybe try it at your own risk, as it’s a bit habit-forming. 🙂

I’ve only had it twice, but fell in love both times.  The first at Uncle in Denver, the second at a little Ramen shop in the gulch in Nashville.  Ramen is brothy, filling, has fun toppings, and feels a little like a warm hug one cold day.  It’s everything a girl could ever want in a soup.

And then… it hit me.  Maybe I could create my own Jenny-friendly ramen-inspired soup, which is exactly where this dish came from.

Oh my stars… this is a BIG bowl of soup.  Let me start there.  It’s not a ramen, but it’s a REALLY nice, healthy second.  I loaded it with so many veggies to add texture, color, and flavor… and I think I did pretty darn good. You’ll have to let me know…

1.  Prepare your veggies.  Note:  I placed my cabbage on the spiralizer to create angel hair cabbage, but you could easily do it with a knife as well.

2.  Saute the cabbage, snow peas, and green beans in a skillet on medium heat, prepared with cooking spray.  Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently and allowing your cabbage to wilt.
