Broth Bowls Panera
Have you ever had a broth bowl from Panera? A broth bowl is mostly a homemade broth with noodles and vegetables. AT least that is what the Panera Browth bowl is.
What is the difference between a broth soup and a broth bowl? Not much actually. The main difference is a broth soup has more broth where a broth bowl is more noodles.
So think broth bowl recipes as the chunky broth soup. Plus a broth bowl is slurpy I think. You use the really long noodles in broth bowl recipes.
I am on a budget right now. Why? Because I just did a huge cross-country move to Florida. That was how this Ranch Noodle Broth Bowl came about, I needed to make budget recipes.
I was looking around my pantry and I saw some udon noodles. Recently I had one those broth noodle bowls from Panera and thought I could make a budget broth bowl recipe.
I saw the envelope of ranch dressing in my pantry. Then it hit me, I could make a broth bowl to give it ranch flavor with udon noodles!
The Ranch Noodle Broth Bowl came out amazing. I used what I have in my cabinets, and I end up with a broth bowl recipe that is made with ranch seasoning. It was great and perfect for anyone on a budget, like me!
