Preparation Time 2 minutes, Cook Time 5 minutes, Ready In 7 minutes — 2 servings
2 Top Ramen Bricks (25¢ – 50¢)
1 1/2 cups ready packaged Coleslaw* ($1)
1/3 cup bean sprouts (35¢)
1/3 cup prepacked fresh baby Spinach (35¢)
2 – 3 chicken eggs (35¢)
3 1/4 cups water
1-2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules (15¢-35¢)
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
- Break up the Top Ramen noodles bricks while still in the packet. I use the side of a rubber mallet to gently break the brick. Throw away the ingredients packet mainly because you really can easily add you own more tasty and healthy ingredients. Ideally you should make your own noodles, but chances are that is not going to happen.
- Pour the broken bricks into the pot and bring to a boil, add salt to the water.
- Then stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper to taste.
- If you have onions, celery, carrots, or the like you can cook them in to taste.
- For a microwave, do the above all together for about 4 minutes
- Add the coleslaw for about one minute.
- While the above is taking place, cook the eggs to desired style. I prefer them fried sunny side up.
- Place the spinach in with the eggs toward the end of the eggs cooking to lightly heat.
- Scoop the soup into serving bowls and then add the egg and spinach on top
- Take the bean spouts and cook them for about 1 minutes in the eggs skillet while it is still hot. You may want to add a little red wine vinegar on the spouts to provide a little spike. Then place this as the crowning of the soup and enjoy.
