Since I cook a lot of dishes with Oriental flavors, like Pork Hash or Mochiko Chicken, I especially love having frozen trays of Dorot Gardens garlic, Dorot Gardens ginger, and Dorot Gardens cilantro in my freezer. The frozen pre-portioned cubes eliminate stinky fingers from chopping garlic, the fuss of grating ginger, and the need to measure anything. It’s a win-win when I want to make quick meals or this Oriental Chicken Noodle Soups Bowls for my sick family.

  1. Wow I’ve never heard of the Dorot cubes before, they sound awesome. I will definitely have to get some to try the next time I go grocery shopping. I am just now getting over a bad cold/flu and this soup would’ve been amazing! I love oriental foods.

    1. I’ve seen bowls like this in jars, but it’s hard to eat out of and most of the time the recipes use uncooked noodles. I’ve tried it and you have to microwave it forever and then it boils over. Use the glass bowls and it’s easier to eat and precooked noodles cut down on microwave time.

  2. This looks delicious! My son love oriental noodles, like he could live off them but I have a hard time finding authentic ones in the store. This recipe looks so good though! I’m pinning it to add to my meal planning!

  3. We love to make chicken soup when we’re sick, too. And I always load it up with ginger and garlic. I love the idea of having the spices ready to go, especially if I’m feeling under the weather. It’s so much easier to cook when you’re sick, if you can take shortcuts.
