Cow Tales by a CowGirl Cook Cooking, Food, Recipes, and Traveling in the Pacific Northwest
Here I sit, MacBook in lap, absorbing my beautiful surroundings. The bracken ferns provide a lovely setting in my backyard, as do the native huckleberry bushes. In September I will likely spend an entire day harvesting huckleberries and perhaps have approximately three cups worth. Just enough to make a huckleberry sauce that should be delightful on cheesecake custard. Awe, the warmth of summer is upon us. Of course that’s Pacific Northwest warmth, which means my house is 67 degrees and my furnace has officially been turned off until fall’s chilly days once again arrive.
Spring and fall are my two favorite seasons. Spring is a rebirth. You see fields of baby calves following their mothers dutifully around the barnyard. Baby goats and sheep line the fenced pastures of the local farms. The greenery bursts forth with such an intensity, pushing blooms outward and making spring blossom. The beauty in spring is that everything once again is born.
Fall is beautiful in it’s own way. It’s a time of death, or hibernation, if you will. Fall’s beautiful colored landscape looks like an artist’s palette – a dab of orange here, a splash of red there, yellow contrasting in between. It’s just a perfect masterpiece on an easel.
It’s ironic that my two favorite seasons are birth and death. Yet somehow the comfort I find in both is what makes me love living in the Pacific Northwest. It’s what always draws me home no matter where I may travel.
Last night I was inspired to once again cook Bon Appetite’s “Spicy Curry Noodle Soup with Chicken and Sweet Potato.” Something about the spicy curry with noodles and sweet potatoes sounded so comforting. There are a few things I changed in the recipe. First, I used fresh rice vermicelli noodles and I added them at the very end and didn’t pre-cook them. They only take approximately 2-3 minutes to cook and the fresh noodles are heavenly. I also used one red and one green jalapeno chile. I’m also a big fan of Trader Joe’s Light Coconut milk. While I won’t use it for baking due to the necessary coconut milk fat content required for sweets, I do use it in curries to help lighten the calorie content.
On the side I served sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and radishes in an Asian style dressing. (Approximately 2 large peeled sliced cucumbers, 1 large sliced tomato, 4 small sliced radishes, 1 tbsp. sesame oil, 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt.) If you have a hearty, whole-grain bread, it will soak up all the delicious spicy curry broth, too.

- 1 sprig fresh thyme, leaves stripped
- 1 pinch ground allspice, or more to taste

Remove chicken to a serving dish continue simmering gravy, uncovered, to thicken (if needed). Serve chicken with gravy.
Spicy Sweet Potato “Noodle” Soup
Oh, hi. My nose is running and my mouth is on fire and I’m a happy, happy girl. Is there anything better than a curry noodle soup? How about a sweet and spicy noodle soup? What about a PALEO and HEALTHY noodle soup? Oh yeah. Now we’re talking.
I’ve been wanting to try sweet potato noodles for a while now. I’m definitely dabbled in the beginner-level veggie noodles like spaghetti squash and zoodles, but had yet to tackle the daunting sweet potato noodle, (swoodles. ).
Was it so daunting, though? Not so much. They are easily spiralized with a spiralizer, (or if you don’t have one, you can cut them into long, thin 1/8″ thick noodles with a knife).
So here I was in my neighborhood Publix shopping for sweet potatoes to turn into noodles, and what do I find.
PRE-MADE SWEET POTATO NOODLES BABY.
You better believe I bought them.
So I’m TECHNICALLY still a swoodle-making virgin, but I’m not even mad.
So anyways, this sweet and spicy noodle soup combo was really hitting the spot tonight. Not summer food, you say? I say this gluten free noodle substitute is the DEFINITION of skinny summer food, (plus, spicy food increases your metabolism!). And perfect for easy summer work lunches because they crank that A/C up, you know what I’m sayin’?
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp red curry paste
- 14 oz. can light coconut milk
- Dash of cinnamon
- Salt & pepper
- Zest of 1 lime
- 8-10 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1 large sweet potato, spiralized or cut into long, thin ⅛" thick "noodles"
- 1 Tbsp honey
- Cilantro for topping
- Heat a medium-sized soup pot over medium heat and add a Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.
- When the oil is hot, add the garlic, ginger, and jalapeño. Stir and cook for no more than 30 seconds before adding the red curry paste.
- Stir and cook 30 more seconds, and then add the can of coconut milk. Go to the sink and refill the can with 14 oz water and add that to the pot. Stir.
- Season soup with a dash of cinnamon, salt and pepper. Zest a lime over the pot and stir.
- Increase the heat to high until the soup begins to boil. Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to medium-low.
- Add the whole chicken breast so that it's completely covered by the liquid. Cover the pot and let simmer for 20 minutes, (you're essentially poaching the chicken breast).
- When the chicken is cooked through, remove the chicken on to a cutting board and shred with two forks into bite-sized pieces. Return the chicken to the soup.
- Add the sweet potato "noodles" and honey, stir, and let simmer on medium-low heat for 5 minutes until the sweet potato "noodles" are soft.
- Serve the soup with fresh cilantro as a garnish.
Spicy Curry Noodle Soup with Chicken and Sweet Potato - Recipes
I've been looking to recreate Buddha's Belly's Spicy Tom Yom Koon soup for a while now and even though this recipe isn't really it, I thought it would satiate the craving and make for a good culinary challenge, or, what the laymen refer to as a bon appetempt . I'm happy to say, it didn't let me down on either front.
The part of the challenge of every attempt that isn't captured via photos is the gathering of ingredients, and this soup was the most difficult to date. Check out just some of things we had to buy:
And after four grocery stores, and two specialty food shops, we still couldn't find yellow curry paste and decided to substitute with the readily available red curry paste, which explains why our version isn't as yellow as b on appélittleheadsupontherarityofyellowcurrypastewouldvebeennice .
Here seems like a good time to catalog our many screw-ups:
1. buying light coconut milk. Thought I would sneak it in there and we wouldn't even notice, but this time my nod towards the healthy backfired and the soups richness and creaminess suffered. (My bad.)
3. forgetting to add sugar to the stock. ( matt's bad, if you ask me.)
4. Not asking the Whole Foods butcher to take the bones out of the thigh pieces. (My bad.)
5. Gifting Shalom Auslander's Foreskin's Lament to Matt's Dad and sister after hearing only the second chapter on This American Life. (While hilarious and moving, this book - the title alone should've tipped us off - makes for a bit of an awkward gift to the in-laws.) (Matt's and my bad.)
Anyway, let's give thai food some credit for its color palette.
The end result is really one part noodles, one part soup and one part garnish. The noodles go into the bowl first, followed by the broth (with the sweet potato and chicken) and then, as garnish, the onions, cilantro, peppers, snow peas and lime.
Final verdict: the soup was spicy and refreshing, but truth be told, it was a little bland. Adding salt helped, but the full fat coconut milk and the two tablespoons of sugar were sorely missed.
In short, we made soup. It tasted pretty good. It's Father's Day and I've blogged instead of sent gifts off. (My BAD.)

Noodle soup recipes
This collection of noodle soup recipes offers some of the greatest comfort food dishes ever created.
Noodle soups are enjoyed in many iterations by many cultures. The mighty Vietnamese pho is a favourite, but needn't always be beefy and rich. Thuy Pham of The Little Viet Kitchen offers up a fragrant, light chicken pho recipe for a beautifully delicate yet full-flavoured broth. Vietnam isn't all about pho, though, as Leyla Kazim proves with her spicy Bún bò Huế recipe.
For something a little more rich, look no further than Peter Gordon's duck laksa recipe, a beautifully tangy and intense Malaysian noodle soup which is given a kick with plenty of tamarind.
If you're after a quick comfort food fix, there's always ramen. Shu Han Lee's miso ramen soup recipe is fragrant, quick and just what you want when short on time but in need of a noodle fix.
Spicy Moroccan Sweet Potato Soup – Instant Pot + Stove Top
I’ve had this soup recipe in my recipe scrapbook for 2 years and finally (FINALLY!) got around to trying it.
As you may have guessed, I’m currently kicking myself for waiting long. It’s positively delicious!
I tinkered around with the spice level a bit and used easy-access sweet potato in place of the pumpkin the original recipe called for… I even tested it for both the stove-top and Instant Pot, WOOT! Now this is the part where I beg you not to be like me, and save this bookmarked for 2 years without trying it. Y’all are smarter than that.
I always keep a few packages of garlic naan in my freezer to make flatbread pizzas and dunk into curry. These bad boys came in handy the following day, when the sweet potato fell apart during reheating and the soup turned into this lusciously thick soup + curry hybrid.
I warmed up a little naan, tore it into pieces, and dunked it into the soup as I ate. Holy cow it was good! I think I’ll be serving this soup with naan from here on out!
