Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Instant Noodles

Noodles have become a comfort food for many busy people. Consumers take a pack of it after a long busy day or just really eat it to have a quick fix during rainy days or sometimes, even ordinary days.

Happily, noodles can be upgraded to look like Japanese ramen or Singaporean soup by just adding extra (mostly healthy) ingredients. 🙂

In the example above,  the following ingredients were added:
Boiled eggs
Sea weed snack
Carrots
Spring onion
My own chicken broth (I removed the packet of seasoning inside the noodle pack .)

Other ingredients that can be added are:

Flavoring:
lemon
Beef broth
Seafood broth

Meat:
Fried and cherished liver
Beef strips
Fish strips
Chicken strips
Spam
Fried bacon bits

Veggies:
Malunggay (especially for breastfeeding moms)
Mushroom
Bean sprouts
Cabbage strips
Cucumber
Spinach (strips)
Peas
Corn

The broth matters a lot. Once you have a tasty broth, the rest serves as additional flavorings to complet the noodle experience.

How about you? How do you upgrade your instant noodles? 🙂

  1. Oh!! This is such a nice idea. My roommate (my husband, btw) and I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle. Im gonna recommend this to him. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  2. Nice idea! We’re not eating instant noodles now because of my dad’s ailment, but we still have some in the pantry. I didn’t know I can use seaweed snacks with them.

    1. If you are going to use the cube, just use 1/4 or half. I personaly, don’t want to use one whole for one pack of noodle.
      I used the actual chicken broth.
