Recipe – Homemade Junk Noodle Soup


The noodle soup packages you get from the stores are the staple for bachelors (and maybe teens, when left to their own devices). Given that these are packed with sodium and god-only-knows what else, I don’t know how I survived this far…

And so, I came up with an alternative. I believe, one day, there will be a bust in my honour, and maybe even a Nobel Peace Prize, for coming up with this recipe…or maybe not…



  • This is, after all, JUNK FOOD, and so, it has to be prepared in a MICROWAVE OVEN 🙂 – mine is 1200W. Use a microwave safe bowl.
    • I cook at Power Level 7 for 4:44
    • Let it sit for a few minutes, and then cook it at Power Level 6 for 2:22 then give it a little longer to soften the noodles.


  • The Ancient Grains noodles provide 12 gms of protein per cup. The daily requirement is 0.36 gms per lb body weight, so if you weigh 100 lbs, you should consume at least 36 gms of protein from various sources, every day.
  • The Ancient Grains noodles provide 8 gms of fibre/cup. The daily requirement is about 25 gms per day for women/ 38 gms per day for men.
  • The more one uses Vegetable broth, the more the World’s chickens and steers will like humans :).
  • The health benefits of cayenne pepper are amazing! I strongly suggest following the links above.
  • Have a great day and stay healthy!!!
