Not having eaten kelp noodles before, I basically followed one of the recipes on the back of the package of noodles, but before it was nearly complete, I gave it a taste and found it to be bland. I quickly decided to change the flavor direction of the dish, from Japanese, to Southeast Asian, by incorporating a few additional spices. What resulted turned out to be a bold success!
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken, bell pepper, spinach, and green onion and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Add kelp noodles, chicken broth, soy sauce, turmeric, curry, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper and stir until noodles soften, about 4 minutes.
