Don’t have a restaurant nearby? Don’t want to walk 5 blocks, wait 10 minutes, spend $10??
With a little planning, a pantry, and a freezer you can have my version of soup called “Lazy-Man Brand Noodle Soup”.
Acquire the following
- favorite flavor pho cube (go ahead, sound it out)
- Green Dragon (or other) wheat/egg noodle pack
- frozen stir-fry vegetables
Get out the wok. Boil 1 liter of water. Add pho cube to dissolve. Dump in 2 servings of noodles. Cook 3 minutes.
Dump the noodles to a big bowl. Wipe out the wok. Heat it back up with some oil.
Dump in the veggies and cook for about 5 minutes, stir a lot.
Dump the noodle soup back in to the wok. Heat and stir for a minute.
Voila. 10 minutes. About 250 calories per person, 500 if you eat the whole thing (good luck).
Add some used chicken, pork, beef, fresh tofu, whatever if you need extra protein.
