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
