Hey, hi! Happiest Monday to everyone!

I have to say, I’m sad to see the weekend go, as it was one of the best ever, and filled with a lot of good things.

After the excitement of Friday’s news of my brother confirming his spot on the US Olympic Snowboard team, the weekend was pretty much spent making travel plans for Korea…and talking about Korea. My mom has been working in a fury to get everything booked and organized (thank god for my mom, she’s like superwoman, just sayin’). Me, my siblings, my parents, some girlfriends, my cousins (and a girlfriend and boyfriend), and maybe an aunt and uncle, are all heading to South Korea. It’s like A LOT of people to be traveling around the world with, but not one of us is going to miss this.

So, the Gerard’s are headed to Korea! Whoop. Whoop. 

Nothing is really as exciting as Olympic talk, but the rest of the weekend was still pretty great. Spent some time cooking and writing in an effort to try to get ahead on work before this coming week, but took Saturday night off to hang with Asher. We hit up the the nail solon (or the spa as she calls it) for her mani + pedi that I got her for Christmas this year, and then came back to my house to make chocolate chip pancakes and watch Gilmore Girls.

You know something? Chocolate chip pancakes + Gilmore Girls + Asher’s giggles…truly my favorite way to spend a Saturday night…and no matter how old I get, I don’t think this will ever change. Fingers crossed that Asher’s teenage self will feel the same way in a couple of years.

Anyway, after the very grey and snowy Saturday (loving the snow), today I’m welcoming all the fresh colors of this bowl with open arms…and preparing for a busy week.

Meaning, I’m going to need plenty of healthy, colorful bowls like this to keep my energy high.

I can’t tell you guys how much I love creating recipes like this loaded bowl. It’s layered with fresh flavors and there’s simply nothing boring about it.

And you know? It’s pretty easy too. I mean, it’s not a five ingredient recipe, but it’s an under an hour, healthy recipe, that’s probably going to take your Monday from boring to fun…and yummy.

Not sure about you guys, but that’s definitely something I’m down for.

Originally, this recipe started out as just a noodle bowl, but then the weather turned super bitter cold and the idea of adding steaming hot broth just sounded way too good.

I didn’t want to make full on soup because for whatever reason a salmon soup just sounds really weird to me, but I loved the idea of my soba noodles swimming in a light brothy liquid. So I did something in between a soup and noodle bowl and ended up with this soupy…ish noodle bowl.

It’s the perfect balance of noodles broth, veggies, and salmon and it’s delicious. Obviously.

The secret to this recipe is all in the homemade chili sauce. It’s a combo of sesame oil, ginger, garlic, chilies, and a touch of honey to keep it sweet. The sauce is tossed with the veggies and salmon just before roasting, which allows for everything to caramelize in the oven.

The veggies and salmon all get cooked up on one sheet pan, and while that’s happening you’ll prepare the noodle portion of your bowl.

I used soba noodles for my bowls because I love pairing them with salmon. That said, you can also use rice noodles or even regular old pasta. Hey, I always say use what you love…or what you have on hand!

When everything has finished cooking, arrange the sweet potatoes, bok choy, salmon, and noodles in bowls and then ladle the hot broth over top. Finish with a sprinkle of herbs and sesame seeds.

And DONE. And YUM.

Simple, quick, easy, healthy!

Also, this is the perfect recipe to meal prep with. Just roast your veggies and salmon as directed, and cook your noodles. Store everything in the fridge (together or separated, it doesn’t matter) and then pack up for lunch (skipping the broth part). Or rewarm as an easy, no hassle, no mess dinner (I’d add the broth if you’re making for dinner).

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
    2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, combine the sweet potatoes, olive oil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Toss well to evenly coat. Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
    3. To make the chili sauce. Combine the sesame oil, ginger, garlic, lime juice, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, honey, and chili paste in a glass jar. Shake to combine.

Transfer to the oven and roast for 10-15 minutes or until the salmon has reached your desired doneness. Spoon the remaining chili sauce over the veggies and salmon, gently tossing to combine. 
    5. Meanwhile, cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Drain. In a pot, bring the broth, rice vinegar, and remaining tablespoon of soy sauce to a boil over high heat. Keep warm.

  2. Hey Tieghan,
    Congratulations again on Red making the Olympics! I’m so excited for him and am looking forward to hearing how the trip goes with your family. 🙂
    I love this noodle bowl and think it would be lovely for a cold night in. 🙂 Have you thought of making a video for this one? (Haha to show the broth idea).
    Either way, I hope you’re staying warm and sweet dreams!

  3. I love soba noodles… just had some the other day, in fact! This looks awesome. And congrats to your Olympian bro!

  4. Congrats again to Red! Such exciting news and exciting times for all the Gerards! Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend with Miss Asher too! Love this hearty bowl! I love easy, flavorful dinners like this one!

  5. 5 stars
    Can I just say that your family is actual goals? How did your mom raise such unique and incredible kids who know how to follow their dreams and passions!

    Also this salmon bowl is everything and I can’t wait to make it next week!! Yesss to all the Asian inspired foods! I can’t wait to see what kind of Korean recipes you take on when you’re back!

    1. Awh thank you so much Libby! My mom and dad have always supported us in everything we choose to do, so I think that was the secret haha! They’re the best!
      Also, so glad you like this salmon bowl and hope it turns out amazing for you! Thank you!

  6. Congratulations to your brother and your family! What wonderful and exciting news!
    I was looking for a winter recipe for soba noodles–I’ll be making this tonight!

  7. Congrats to your brother and family on the Olympics! Very excited to follow along! Also, this recipe. Drooling! I love the combination of these flavors with salmon. xo

  8. Congrats to your brother, how amazing!!
    I lived in South Korea for 3 years, it is such a stunning, fun and vibrant country (and the food is beyond awesome)
    I am sure you will love it.

  9. Tieghan, this looks so delicious! Something about warm soba bowls in the winter is just so comforting.

    Also re: the Olympics, I live the next town over from Pyeongchang, and I am SO pumped for the coming Games. I’m guessing that you’re gonna eat every Korean food that you can; make sure you try hotteok (호떡 – think a yeasty, chewy pan-fried pancake filled with cinnamon, peanuts, and melted brown sugar)!! Hands down the best Korean dessert and the best dollar you can spend on street food!

  10. something like this does add a lot of interest to what I call drab mondays. I do not like mondays ahahahah.
