Thai Sunbutter Chicken Noodle Soup

Nut-Free Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

A “cold front” crept into the Florida coast this weekend. And by that, I mean it’s 3 degrees cooler with a tiny bit less humidity. But look, we take what we can get. So, I decided that even though it’s still warm out, I’m making soup!

One of my favorite soups is chicken noodle soup. However, I had some fresh ginger that needed to be used up, so I decided to put a Thai spin on this American classic and make a Nut-Free Thai Chicken Noodle Soup.

Peanuts and Thai chicken go hand-in-hand, but I wanted a nut-free soup so I went ahead and used sunflower seed butter instead. With a few fresh veggies – green onions, garlic, ginger, and bell pepper – and some pantry staples – chicken broth, sesame oil, fish sauce, and soy sauce – I was able to whip up a delicious, simple soup in no time!
