Day 2626 – Homemade Cup Of Noodles!

I am a sucker for cup of noodles and ramen noodles. Mmmmm. Love ’em! What don’t I love? The MSG. So, I have been on a quest to make my own. A few months ago, a friend from our bible study made rice noodles and an authentic Vietnamese meal. I thought, huh, these noodles are great, I could make these at home and have cup of noodles!

Last weekend, we FINALLY went to H Mart…which is right down the road….and we are definitely like, um, WHY did we wait to come here??? It was like journeying to another country. We got a ton of delicious foods and I got my rice noodles. I’ve been reading up on homemade cup of noodles for a while and had a few ideas.

After much trial and error, I finally found a recipe that works great for me!

I put about 1/4 cup of frozen veggies in a glass bowl and microwave about 30-60 seconds

After they’re mostly heated, I add some chicken, baby corn and water chestnuts

I boil about 2-3 cups of water and after it boils, I take it off the stove and put in my noodles for 2 mins.

These are the noodles I use, but there were a ton of other options.

Now here’s the secret sauce! I couldn’t get a good flavor but I read sriracha is a good flavor aid, and it is! So I put in about 1/2 tsp of minced garlic, a few squirts of sriracha and about 1 tsp of better than bullion, I’m using the veggie flavor.

I dump in the noodles and water they’ve been cooking in, I like a good broth in my noodles.

I give it a stir and I have my very own homemade cup of noodles without MSG

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
