Cheap Eats: Bok Choy & Rice Noodles

Okay, we had the house warming and it was fantastic. Now life is back to normal. This means normal food, normal drinks, and normal old life in our new home. Here's the regular meal we had last night:

4 dots of Sriracha per dish (to start with)
To make it you'll need:
1/2 pack (7oz) rice noodles
7 Lrg. Basil Leaves, sliced
2 Head Bok Choy
1/4 C yellow corn (optional)
1 container Low sodium Chicken Broth
1/2 C pre-cooked sausage
1/2 C Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in half
5 Lrg Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 Sm Onion, thinly sliced
Salt/Pepper to taste
Sriracha, as much as you like


In one pot boil water for your noodles. In another large saucepan saute garlic and onion in oil until lightly browned, then add cubed sausage and stir for 5 mins over low heat. Add broth, half of the basil, bok choy, and corn then bring to a boil. allow to simmer for 5 minutes--or until the greens are wilted. Toss in the cherry tomato to cook for the last minute or two.

In the pot of boiling water add your rice noodles and allow to boil for 4-5 minutes--or until tender. Remove this pan from heat, strain off and discard the water, and separate the noodles into two deep bowls then garnish with the thinly sliced Basil.. Squeeze in Sriracha to suit your liking. When the pot of soup is finished, divvy up the broth and ingredients between your two dishes, . Stir, take a few pictures, and enjoy.
