I’ve been telling y’all how I am making an effort to cook more and recently I got together with a small group of friends and we made some delicious spring rolls! I love making spring rolls with friends because it’s simple and people can add whatever they want. Plus, it’s just a little bit interactive so people really feel like they are a part of the meal. This recipe though stemmed out of having a bunch of leftover ingredients from that dinner! I couldn’t let all those herbs and veggies go to waste and the perfect solution was to quickly whip up a vermicelli bowl for lunch one day. I thought you all might like this one too because you can easily make this ahead and have for lunch at work.

Chicken Vermicelli Bowls

These bowls are great because they are quick and easy to make. You can use basically any veggies you want although the ones I included are my favorites! Vermicelli bowls are one of my favorite meals to make on super hot summer days. The noodles can be served hot or cold, which make them perfect for leftovers.

The veggies keep things nice and light. If you want an even lighter substitution, you can use shredded iceberg lettuce in place of half the noodles. I’ve seen this done at lots of restaurants and think it is a brilliant solution! However, I wouldn’t recommend going all lettuce and no noodles because the noodles really soak up lots of the flavors from the sauce. And you don’t want to miss out on those!

I am a noodle gal, so you don’t have to twist my arm too hard to dive into a big bowl of my favorite carb. I find something really comforting about the twirling and getting the perfect ratio of sauce to veggie to noodle. The whole ritual just makes me happy. Maybe I’m a weirdo but hey whatever. My guess is if you’re still here then you’re a noodle fanatic too!
