Come Fall, I take comfort in fuzzy boots, soft sweaters, and GIANT bowls of spicy, slurpy soup. And although September is hardly the heart of the season, I say it’s never too early to start filling up our recipe boxes with easy, healthy, cozy soup recipes. I’ll hold off on the chili for another month or so… but soup we do now I don’t think you’ll mind one bit once you take a bite of this spicy sriracha ramen noodle soup!
This soup is made with packaged ramen noodles (yes; you can totally buy the 29 cent packs and just discard the seasoning), vegetable stock, fresh veggies, dried herbs, and sriracha! You may top your spicy bowl off with cilantro, hot peppers, scallions, a soft boiled egg, or – my personal favorite – ALL OF THE ABOVE! Can I hear a heck-to-the-yum?!
The great thing about this comforting recipe is it’s SO simple to throw together – even on a night you don’t feel like cooking. The steps are so easy! First you simmer some sesame oil with an onion, parsley, garlic, chopped tomato, and some spices. That takes about 6 minutes. Then you’ll transfer that mix to the blender for a quick whirl – 20 seconds max – before pouring it back into the pot, adding some water and store-bought stock, and bringing to a boil. At this point you’re half way done! Woot. Lastly you’ll add a splash of sriracha, soy sauce, and vinegar (optional, but I love the slight tang), boil for another minute or so, then add your noodles. The noodles only need to cook about 2 minutes, so be sure you’ve tasted your soup and adjusted the seasoning to your taste preference before adding the noodles. Soggy noodles suck So I’m just trying to save you from that.
Once your soup is ready, just top it off with a little – or a lot – of whatever, and slurp away!!! Enjoy! xo
