Tasty, quick, easy soup just like I remember from childhood
on May 18, 2016
Yum! I was so glad to find these here again, with the original style noodles. For awhile they had those extra wide ones that sounded awful, although I never tried them. Back to my tried and true boil some water, soup's done in 5 minutes.
When I'm feeling 'fancy' I'll sometimes add some herbs and/or chopped veggies to this. I've also lightly whisked and drizzled in an egg to add protein before. To make a sort of el cheapo version of hot and sour soup I've also tried adding diced tofu and canned bean sprouts plus a few drops of Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce) and vinegar to taste.
But usually, this is my go-to soup when I really don't feel that great or have much time and need to eat something. It's fast, tasty, and reminds me of childhood somehow. I was glad to find it on Amazon because my local store has jacked the price up to $2 per box and that's pretty overpriced in my opinion.
The only downside is the sodium content is really high, so I always make sure to drink lots of water with it too.
