Summer is noodle bowl weather. I like to take leftover (homegrown) cooked chicken and make quick and easy meals with it, like an Asian-inspired noodle bowl.

Each year, it seems like a different plant goes gangbusters in the pastures. Two years ago, it was red clover: so plentiful, it seemed like it was everywhere. Sadly, despite my plans to make something delightful with it, last year was a red clover bust. This year, the standout plant is the delicately white-flowered chickweed.
While it’s not technically “Slow Cooking Month” anymore, I’m still making delicious meals in my slow cooker and will be for the remainder of the year! This time, I’ve adapted a stovetop recipe for one of my favorite Indian dishes, Palak Paneer, into a one bowl meal where tofu stands in for the traditional cheese.
After making Portuguese Kale Soup, I had a few woody kale stems left. Toss them? No way – they’re the perfect complement to salmon in pasta!
This is, without a doubt, one of my ⭐️favorite⭐️ slow cooker dishes. Its flavors meld into a hearty, savory, utterly delightful one-pot meal. Even if you aren’t a big kale fan, you’ll appreciate this soup!
