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!
15-Minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup
Chances are, you’ve seen this 15-Minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup because it’s one of the top-read noodle posts on the blog! Why? Because it *actually* does take just 15 minutes and yet is very, very, very delicious.
20-Minute Chicken Pho
The thing about pho is that to do it right, it can take a looong time to make the broth (see our traditional pho recipe). This 20-Minute Chicken Pho comes together quickly with the same flavor you crave.
Quick and Easy Kimchi Ramen
Homemade Korean Kimchi ramen is easy to do at home. All it takes is a good kimchi and a handful of veggies to make it a full meal!
10-Minute Tomato Egg Drop Noodle Soup
This 10-Minute Tomato Egg Drop Noodle Soup combines an enduring, home-cooked Chinese combination: tomato and eggs. Sounds a bit uncanny, but anyone who grew up eating scrambled eggs and ketchup gets it. Egg is the easiest way to make noodle soup into a meal, and the addition of tomato results in a rich and flavorful broth.
Udon Noodle Soup with Chicken and Mushrooms
Tasty udon is surprisingly easy to achieve at home with this Udon Noodle Soup with Chicken and Mushrooms. The best part may just be that when you go to your favorite Japanese restaurant craving everything, you won’t have to go for the udon instead of the sashimi.
Curry Mee Malaysian Noodle Soup
Curry noodles soups always seem intimidating, but with all the great canned curry pastes out there, they actually come together in no time at all. This Curry Mee Malaysian Noodle Soup is a new favorite of ours!
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…
Noodle Soup with Pork and Pickled Vegetables
Remember the repertoire of my mom’s noodle soup recipes that I mentioned earlier? This Noodle Soup with Pork and Pickled Vegetables was core, and always a real treat for a pickle-loving little kid like me. Comfort food at its best.
Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Ramen
If you have some leftover roast turkey or roast chicken languishing in your fridge, this noodle soup is the one for you. Even though this is Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Ramen, you can indeed enjoy this in wintry pseudo springtime!
We’ve been feasting on this Curry Ramen for years and years, both outside over a campfire, and on the stovetop when you’re just really, really hungry and want something savory and tasty that only costs $1. Is there anything better?
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?
