Tom Yum Ramen Noodle Soup




Yield 2-3 Servings



  1. Heat oil in a pot over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add the garlic and ginger and stir for few minutes until fragrant but not browned.
  2. Add tom yum paste and continue to cook for about 4-5 minutes until the paste has slightly deepened in color.
  3. Add broth, water, salt and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and add soy sauce, scallions, cilantro and cooked ramen noodles. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. (Noodles will soak up some of the liquid so add more water/broth and tom yum paste as needed.)
  4. Serve hot, with toasted sesame seeds on top and more sliced scallions/cilantro.

Optional Variations: Use Zucchini Noodles, Soba Noodles, Whole Wheat Spaghetti and add your choice of vegetables like mushrooms.
