  • Fry an egg on a separate pan and add to the soup.
  • Top it off with cilantro, green onion, and a little big of lemon juice

  • Stir-fry Instant Noodles
  • If you’d like a stir fry option for these noodles, look no further!
  • Stir fry the chopped yellow onion, sesame oil, and minced garlic in a pan for 3-5 minutes, or however long it takes for the onion to get sufficiently browned
  • At the same time, place your instant noodle in a pot of hot water and cook the noodles
  • Add chili sauce to the pan at whatever spice level you’d like it to be. Also add red peppers and the soy sauce to the pan
  • Immediately after adding the soy sauce, place the cooked instant noodles in the pan (without any of the water). Mix everything together in the pan
  • If you’d like, you could also add some of the flavor bag that came with the instant noodle. Don’t add all of it, just some.
  • Once all the flavors are to your liking, top if off with a fried egg and some green onion
  • Enjoy!
