With bagged broccoli slaw and a spoonful of red curry paste, you’re two ingredients away from totally transforming instant ramen into a veggie-packed noodle soup with a warm curry flavor.

Why You Should Try This Instant Upgrade

Bagged broccoli slaw has proved its worth time and again with salads and stir-fries, and this quick noodle soup is yet another way to put it to work. Contrasting with the chewy noodles, thin strips of broccoli, carrots, and cabbage bring a fresh, crunchy bite to the soup. They won’t add much in the flavor department, but that’s okay because a small spoonful of red curry paste brings big flavor and spice.

How to Make It

Prepare the instant ramen according to the instructions on the package. Stir in about one teaspoon of red curry paste and broccoli slaw and cook until the vegetables are just cooked. Pour into a bowl and serve immediately.
