Dress up ramen noodle soup in a healthy, delicious way! Place ramen noodle soup in a bowl, just cover with water, and add your favorite greens (I especially love mustard greens). Add some soy sauce (you can use low sodium soy sauce), and cook as usual.

I agree! I like to throw in tofu, spinach, shredded carrots and other extra veggies I may have on hand. Also, use extra meat that you may have such as ham, shrimp, chicken. Kids like corn, peas and carrots in theirs! It makes a more filling and yummy soup!
What a great idea! I eat a lot of raw spinach, so this sounds like a yummy dish. Thanks for sharing!
Green onions cut into thin rings and sprinkled on top of hot soup are tasty.
Bean sprouts are good for this too, raw or slightly steamed. If you happen to have bamboo shoots or other Asian-type veggies, they are great for this.
Hard-boiled eggs, cut in half, put on top of the noodles, look nice and provide protein.

I never eat Ramen Noodles plain.
I always add vegetables and chicken or turkey.
I buy frozen vegetables on sale & use left over meat
and have a VERY inexpensive meal!
I saute' lots of onions and mushrooms and put that into the soup as well. When all the veggies and the noodles are all cooked, I beat a couple eggs mixed with some toasted sesame oil and drizzle into the boiling soup. It makes a real good egg flower-type soup. I fix that when I can't think of anything for dinner. Works great!
