Ramen Vegetable Soup
Recipes that you can adapt and change depending upon what you have on hand or like are my favorite. There is no last minute panicking because you don’t have a certain ingredient in your cupboard, choose something else and in the words of Tim Gunn on Project Runway “make it work!”
I am all about posting recipes that are going to work for you and your family. Lucky for you, all of the recipes need to get the stamp of approval from Ryan and myself before we would consider sharing them with you!
You can think of us as your personal recipe approvers. :-)
This ramen vegetable soup is great during this transitional time when it’s starting to get cooler outside and it’s also well suited for winter.
If you don’t want an extra kick of spice leave the sriracha out. I think I actually ended up doubling the amount of sriracha because Ryan is the king of spicy in our house – did you see how empty our sriracha bottle is in the above picture?!.
Although this dish is called ‘ramen vegetable soup’ you don’t actually use the seasoning packet from the ramen. There are probably too many mystery ingredients in there anyway, so either set it aside or throw it in the trash.
You could actually substitute angel hair pasta or regular spaghetti pasta in place of the ramen noodles. If you choose to cook the substitute noodles in the pot with all of the ingredients remember to adjust the cooking time of the noodles. Otherwise, prepare the noodles in a separate pot and add to the vegetable soup once done.
The next time this soup comes up on our menu plan, I think I’ll give it a try with angel hair pasta.
I’m off to buy more sriracha!
