Instant Ramen Soup


Instant Ramen Soup

Ramen noodles are inexpensive and fun to make. Just skip the seasoning packet (which has more salt than we like to use) and add your own flavors—plus a few good-for-you ingredients to make your body happy. Kids Advisory Board member Yahmai tested it and said, “My brothers and sisters loved it and we are making it again. It is good for families on a budget.”

kitchen gear

  • Small bowl
  • Fork
  • Small pot
  • Large spoon
  • Measuring spoons


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (3-ounce) package instant ramen noodles (discard the seasoning packet)
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha or another hot sauce (if you like spicy)
  • 1 tbsp sliced scallions


  • Crack the egg in the bowl and beat it with the fork. Set it aside.
  • Cook the ramen noodles according to thepackage directions.
  • When the noodles are cooked, don’t drain them. Add the beaten egg and the spinach and stir well; the heat from the water will cook them almost immediately.
  • Add the soy sauce and hot sauce (if using). Taste the broth and add more seasonings if it needs them. Top with the scallions and eat right away.


Add any or all of these to the pot when you add the noodles: 
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ½ cup cubed tofu
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
