This was super easy and quick to make. I did use some frozen peas and carrots instead of julienned carrots because I had some zinc needed to use up. I also added a couple drops of sesame seed oil just prior to serving. This would also be good using leftover cooked pork or chicken.

I really enjoyed this! I have always loved ramen noodles, including their convenience. My husband would never even try them until I doctored them into a main dish soup with this recipe. It really upped the flavor factor! I served it with a simple green salad and Hawaiiian style rolls. I followed the recipe as stated, although I chickened out a bit and only used 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. I used good quality canned shrimp, because that is what I had on hand. An easy, tasty and filling main dish!

I did not have green onion and only lower sodium soy sauce. However, I did have coleslaw mix and added about a cup and a half to up the veggies and make it healthier. Because of the lower sodium soy sauce my broth did not have much flavor. But easy fix - add more soy, some of the ramen seasoning packet or even some sirarcha. Next time I may even add a boiled egg or maybe some water chestnuts. There are possibilities. I especially love how quick this comes together - 8 minutes. Great recipe if you're not feeling well and dont have the energy to put into cooking a pot of soup and also great for a quick lunch!
