We made this copycat Panera Bread noodle bowl, and it was to die for. Better and healthier than theirs....

This was delicious and actually fairly easy to make which is a bonus for single, full-time working moms like me.  The full recipe we used is below, we tweaked the original recipe a little but not much.

This is what is going in the pot.

Carrots, washed, cut, and sauteing in a bit of olive oil.  Add the chopped onions to the carrots.

This pot has the water, coconut water, a little more olive oil, sea salt, and chili powder.  Just let this simmer while the other ingredients are cooking.

Green is good.

Wash and chop the baby bellas and add to the pot with the onions and carrots.

After about 10 minutes add in the edamame, heat, stir, and then toss the baby spinach on top.  Turn off the heat and cover to let all the goodness meld together.  Now toss the rice or soba noodles in the pot with the broth for three minutes. 

Once the noodles are ready, don't drain them, just let them sit.  Place some noodles and broth in a bowl and top with the vegetables from the saute pan.  Throw on a bit of fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime and go for it!  Amazing! 

  • 1 bag of frozen or fresh edamame
  • 6 cups of water
  • olive oil
  • coconut water (Thai brand)
  • 3 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons of ground sea salt
  • 1 small white onion – finely diced
  • 2 medium carrots – peeled and finely diced
  • 2 cups of sliced baby Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves (organic if possible)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of minced fresh thyme
  • 1 bunch of rice/soba noodles
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Lime (optional)
  • Ground sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
