Nothing says convenience like instant noodles. Microwaving a cup of noodles gives you the feel and satisfaction of takeout without the cost. But what if we told you that you could make your own instant noodle soup at home? This homemade version made with spiralized veggies will make you rethink the next time you reach for a sodium-packed, microwaveable cup from the back of your pantry.

These take-along jars don’t have “noodles” at all. Rather spiralized zucchini and carrots pose as ramen or rice noodles. Once the zucchini and carrots are spiralized using the 4-in-1 Electric Spiralizer, layer the spirals, shredded chicken, bok choy and green onion in mason jars.

In a microwave-safe bowl, mix chicken broth, honey, salt, pepper, ground ginger, and crushed red pepper. Microwave the mixture on high for about two minutes, until it comes to a boil. Pour the broth over the ingredients in the mason jar and serve immediately. It’s just that easy.

What’s great about these instant “noodle” cups is that you can easily prep them as a grab-and-go lunch for the week. If you want to prepare these cups ahead of time, skip the boiling of the broth and pour the cold liquid into mason jars. When you’re heading to work or when the kids head to school, the mason jars will be ready and waiting in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to eat, pour the mixture into a bowl and microwave for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Not only are these instant noodle cups a great back-to-school or desk lunch idea, they are easily customizable. If you wanted to make a vegetarian version, nix the shredded chicken and use vegetable broth instead. Want it a little spicer? Up the ground ginger and red pepper flakes and add sriracha on top.

Whether you are eating these instant noodle cups day-of or a few days later, you won’t miss the 99 cent version you’re used to.

January has arrived. Can you believe the holidays are already over? After indulging (read: overindulging) at family feasts and holiday parties over the past month, I’m excited to get back on track in the kitchen. That all starts with my juicer.

In January, my juicer takes it’s rightful place on my kitchen counter and reminds me that I shouldn’t only be eating my fruits and vegetables but also drinking them.

Carrot and turmeric tonic is a great recipe to get you started juicing in the New Year. It’s simple, tasty, and beautiful. I know plenty of people who are a little hesitant (frightened, frankly) by green juice. This juice looks a little more familiar, like the orange or carrot juice you might already have in the fridge.

We juiced one golden delicious apple (the entire apple fits in the big mouth of our Premium Big Mouth® 2 Speed Juice Extractor, cha-ching), a piece of turmeric, a piece of ginger, lemon, 4 large carrots, and a cucumber. Together, these ingredients make one bright, flavorful juice. The sweet apples and carrots pair well with the tangy lemon and refreshing cucumber. The ginger adds a little spice while the turmeric adds, color and health benefits – it’s a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

Put down the mulled cider, hot chocolate, and holiday cocktails and start juicing this January. Move over OJ, there’s a new orange juice in town.
