Ramen Noodle Soup

Let me clarify - home made Ramen Noodle Soup.

This has become our new favorite lunch.  The kids ask for it all the time.  It started when Eric and I got back from New York and I wanted to make the noodle soup we had there.

I found some plain old ramen-style Chinese noodles at a better grocery store here in town.  You could also use the regular ramen packages, just toss out the flavor packet.  I start with my home made broth (chicken, beef, vegetable) and I add some extra water.  Then it's simply the noodles!

And then it's all about the toppings.


Ramen Noodle Soup

1 - 10 ounce package Chinese ramen noodles
2 quarts chicken, beef, or vegetable broth
1 or 2 eggs, beaten, (optional)

Bring the broth to a boil, add the noodles, and cook, separating them, for 3-5 minutes.  Slowly add the egg (if using), stirring gently the whole time with a chopstick, for just another minute.

Toppings:

chopped or shredded cooked meat
chopped green onions

chile flakes or chili sauce
fish sauce
soy sauce
sesame oil

Add any or all of the toppings as you please.  Eat with chopsticks, slurping the noodles, and then drink the broth.

  2. Neato. Love it. Am using the toss-out-the-packet variety tonight with chicken broth, but I'm going to put veggies in the soup with the chicken. This does look wonderful for lunch, and I'm keepin' it in mind!

    Thanks!
