Chicken, Soba and Nori Bowls

With the weather warming up I love coming up with easy dishes you can just throw together with bits and bobs you might already have in the kitchen. This dish has so many highly nutritious foods in it from shiitake mushrooms, avocado, nori, radish, bok choy, spinach plus some ingredients to balance it out like chicken and soba noodles. This will be a good go to for when you want a light meal that still tastes amazing!
