  • 1 pkg Ramen noodle soup (Beef or Chicken)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-2 tsp soy sauce to taste
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar, if you don\’t have this kind)
  • dash red pepper flakes
    Optional Ingredients

  • 1/2 can bean sprouts
  • 1 green onion, chopped (green part only)
  • corn starch or xanthan gum powder

In a medium saucepan, combine the water, the ramen noodles (break up in package first), contents of seasoning packet, and bean sprouts (if opted). Heat on high until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 10-15 mins or until noodles are cooked to your preferred 'doneness'.

Add the soy sauce and vinegar and stir for a minute or two.

Serve immediately, garnished with green onions.

Make sure you can eat all of this at once, or share it with someone, as the leftover version isn\'t very tasty.

Note: If you want to thicken the soup to a consistency more like the Asian restaurants serve it, take 1 tsp corn starch or xanthan gum powder and 3 tablespoons cold water and mix them together in a small bowl or cup, stirring until dissolved. Add this to the pot after the first time it boils, bring to boil again to thicken.
