Asian-style noodle bowls take comfort food to a whole new world of flavor with exotic spices, pastes, and sauces. Yes, you may have to hunt down some specialty ingredients at an Asian grocery, but thanks to the miracle of technology, you can order just about anything online at a site like Amazon.com.
The beauty of these bowls is that you can change up the proteins, add or subtract vegetables, and use any kind of noodles you want. In fact, Asian-style noodle bowls are a smart way to turn leftovers into flavorful new meals. They're time-savers, too: All of these recipes can be ready in 40 minutes or less.
Are they as "authentic" as what you'd find in Asia? Probably not. After all, a lot can get lost in translation as recipes move across oceans and continents. But that doesn't make them any less satisfying.
