Healthy Instant Noodles Instructions:

  1. Cook the instant noodles according to the package instructions, but reduce the cooking time by about half.

  2. Rinse the cooked noodles under cold water thoroughly to stop the cooking process and prevent them from getting soggy. Set them aside.
  3. Prepare a large mason jar or a similar container for assembling your DIY cup noodles.
  4. Into the jar, add minced garlic, green onion, the soup packet included with the instant noodles, and spicy sauce (if desired).
  5. Add corn, shredded carrots, and broccoli.
  6. Take the partially cooked noodles and place them in the jar, on top of the other ingredients.
  7. To add protein, include tofu cubes.
  8. If desired, add vegan kimchi on top of the ingredients for an additional burst of flavour.
  9. When ready to eat, fill the jar with hot, boiled water just until the ingredients are submerged.
  10. Mix and close the jar tightly and let it sit for about 2-3 minutes to allow the noodles to cook and the flavours to infuse. If you are preparing this straight out of the fridge, you might need to microwave for 1-2 minutes to make sure the contents are hot enough.
  11. Once the noodles are tender and the ingredients are “cooked”, your DIY cup noodles are ready to eat.
