Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1 cup Chicken stock (or veg stock)
  • A few strands of Ramen Noodles (¼ portion)
  • 2 tablespoons frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 teaspoons amino acids (or soy sauce)
  • ½ teaspoons chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon green onions , sliced
  1. In a large microwavable mug add in all of your ingredients. Use a large mug as the stock can bubble up while cooking. Break the noodles so they fit in the mug
  2. Microwave for 2-2 ½ minutes or until the noodles are tender. The timing is based on my 1200W Panasonic Inverter Microwave so yours might vary.
  3. Serve hot from the microwave. Feel free to add more chili sauce, sesame seeds or any flavors you like.
