🥘 Ingredient Notes
- Water or broth: This forms the base and the additional ingredients add the bulk of the flavor. Water works beautifully, or if you have a favorite veggie broth, that works well too!
- Sriracha sauce: Sriracha adds a nice touch of spicy heat, as well as a boost of sweetness in this noodle broth.
- Coconut aminos: This not only adds a beautiful silkiness to the broth, but also a wonderful umami flavor that greatly complements the other ingredients in this recipe.
- Garlic powder: Garlic paired with sriracha is a match made in heaven and really just rounds all the flavors out beautifully.
- Salt: Salt is what pulls all the beautiful flavors through into their full glory. You can control just how subtle or rich this dish is based upon how much salt you choose to add.
- Ramen noodles: Ramen noodles simply taste amazing in this broth. But, you can use any noodles of your choosing in a pinch!
- Fresh cilantro: This adds the perfect sprinkle of freshness and vibrancy, as well as a nice nutritional punch. If you aren't a cilantro fan, opt for another fresh herb like fresh parsley or Thai basil.
- Avocado: You might be asking "Avocado? Really?" but yes, avocado! It is a-m-a-z-i-n-g simply sliced straight into a bowl of piping hot noodle soup. Trust me!
🔪 How-to Make — Step by Step
💭 Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Soy sauce or even tamari will work well in this recipe.
I love using gluten-free ramen noodles in this particular dish, BUT any rice noodles or even spaghetti noodles will work!
This is so quick and easy to make that meal prepping will not save a large amount of time. But if you need to, you can prepare the broth ahead of time and keep it stored in the fridge and simply bring to a boil to cook the noodles before serving. This tastes best served nice and warm straight away, but will keep at room temperature for a few hours, otherwise store all in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and simply reheat until warmed throughout before serving again.
It might be a bit unconventional but trust me when I say that avocado is the perfect choice for this dish! It just works. We also enjoy this with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds, a squeeze of lime and sometimes some diced tofu.
