Our Top Picks for Quick and Easy Noodle Soups

Our Top Picks for Quick and Easy Noodle Soups

Today we have a roundup of some of our favorite quick and easy noodle soup recipes from the blog. Growing up, my mom’s noodle soup repertoire covered just a couple of basic variations of noodle soup that would show up on the dinner table on busy days and for light lunches. If we craved anything more complicated, chances are we headed to our local Chinese restaurant. But since starting the blog, we’ve discovered lots recipes that still pack lots of flavor and warming goodness with minimal time and effort!

And if you’re living somewhere where it’s cold currently, you’re probably wondering–like many of us–just when exactly this winter is going to quit and give way to spring! It’s getting to the point of being alarming, but we won’t talk climate change right now since we know you’re all just here for the food. While we wait for springtime weather to return to normalcy, enjoy a bowl of noodle soup!

Shanghai Hot Sauce Noodles

Shanghai Hot Sauce Noodles is known as “la jiang mian” or sometimes “doubanjiang mian (豆瓣酱面)” The dish is comprised of noodles, broth, and a spicy mixture of pork, tofu, peanuts, spicy chili bean paste, and sugar (the Shanghainese love sugar in their dishes). The spicy, savory mixture poured over a hot bowl of noodles can be pretty addictive…

Pho Ramen

This Pho Ramen was borne of necessity when SARAH forgot the curry powder on our camping trip to California. However, it was a happy accident–who knew that a little beef jerky, some onions, and a squeeze of lime could go so far with a cheap packet of Maruchan? Pho Ramen, by thewoksoflife.com
