Jodi's Story

I got this recipe from my step-mother. It is absolutely yummy. I had actually forgotten it until I saw a recipe on-line quite like it called Asian noodle soup. It's quick and easy.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A fun - and tasty - shortcut to wonderful soup! Have it on its own for a lovely lunch, or serve it as a starter for an Asian-flavored feast!


one lb
fresh cooked peeled deveined small shrimp
one half c
sliced green cabbage
one half c
chinese snow peas
one half c
sliced fresh mushrooms
one half c
green onions sliced
one half c
bean sprouts, fresh
3 pkg
oriental flavored top ramen
8 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Put eight cups of water in large pot heating on medium heat just up to boil, then turn to low
Take the three packages of ramen and remove the seasoning packets, setting the noodles aside and adding the seasoning packets to the water
Take the mushrooms, the cabbage, and the green onions, slice them and add to water simmering on low approximately 10 min
Take the shrimp, and the ramen, and add them to the pot, by now your soup should be filling your kitchen with a wonderful aroma
and the last step...I'll bet you thought I forgot. The secret ingredient, The bean sprouts. You add these last as you want them cooked but still crisp, just wash and toss them in. I might add, I never though i'd eat bean sprouts, but they give this soup an amazing flavor.
The only seasoning I use is pepper to taste and I serve with soy sauce and people can add it if they like. There is plenty of salt in the ramen packets and combined with the natural flavors, You really don't need anything else.
This soup is "souper" simple, the only thing to avoid overcooking it. I must admit times are approximate but close, I'm one of these cooks that everything is a pinch or a dash, and on timing it's when it looks/taste right. But this recipe is almost foolproof.

    I'm sorry if I messed up, I must admit I'm still confused about exactly how this all works. I have many recipes, My main problem is Just like your name implies, "Just a Pinch", and that's how a cook, Just a pinch of this, a pinch of that.....So, to try to convert that to actual amounts is quite difficult. So, Please bear with me. I also have severe emphysema and COPD, So many of my recipes have had to be simplified to make them where I can still prepare them. Add to that cutting down to cooking for two, It's been a roller coaster of fun. I know I've gathered a lot of advice from this site, maybe I have something someone can fin useful as well.
