Craving Korean food? Instead of ordering out, try out this easy Korean Noodle Soup recipe instead. You should have most items in your pantry. I like to use Kimchee in this noodle soup for flavor. Kimchee is fermented cabbage with korean spices and is very tasty. Kimchee (or kimchi) also is a great probiotic, aids with digestion, helps with weight management AND help boost your immune system. It is a staple in Korean food and is usually served as a side dish at every meal.
Since Covid19, most of us have been social distancing and trying to boost our immune system, so now is a great time to have kimchi. If you don’t have kimchee or don’t like kimchi, you can omit it and add in a couple of other ingredients instead.
I came up with this Korean noodle soup recipe when I was camping in Oregon. I was in my van and it was cold and wet. I was craving Korean noodle soup and since the closest Korean restaurant was 2 hours away, I decided to look in my fridge to see what I can make. This Korean Noodle Soup recipe is so easy I made it on my Coleman Camper Stove in the Van in less than 10 minutes.
Best of all, you just need one medium size pot so there is almost no dishes to wash!
Easy Korean Noodle Soup
Noodles (one serving) – You can use any noodles you have on hand
Vegetables – 1 to 2 cups (I prefer spinach or any leafy greens) 1 Egg (optional) Cauliflower rice – 1 cup (fresh or frozen)
Meat or seafood- (raw or cooked)
1 medium Tomato
1) Put the noodles in the medium size pot.
2) Add water to fill about 2/3 of the pot and start to boil on medium heat.
3) Cut up tomato into pot.
4) Add in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ginger. I use scissors to cut it into tiny pieces directly into the pot. If you are using frozen cauliflower rice, add it in now.
5) Add soy sauce to taste. You can always add more at the end.
6) Add in meat or seafood (If you use raw meat, make sure it is thinly sliced)
7) Once the water begins to boil, put it in low heat. Add cauliflower rice.
8) Cook until the noodles are ready, usually total time of 8 to 10 mins or less. Check to make sure meat or seafood is cooked.
8) Add in raw egg and leafy vegetables and turn off heat. Stir in to soup
9) Add sesame oil and to taste
10) Add in kimchee. If you are not using kimchee, add in a little vinegar for flavor. Add siracha if you desire more spice.
11) Eat 😋
You can add in any kind of noodles and it’s a great way to use up left overs. Let me know what you think. 😁
