As a college student, its not uncommon for me to have long stints of powering through cup after cup of tea or coffee, and of course, the ever popular cup of noodles.
Paper coffee cups and Cups Of Noodles seem to share a common purpose in this busy world; they are designed to be convenient and quick, but whats left behind often simply gets thrown away, unable to be recycled. So why not offer an alternative to both of these problems?
So here i have for you, a fantastic way to reuse all of those empty coffee cups, and make yourself a delicious home-made cup of noodle soup, that is just as quick and portable as the real thing! (And healthier too)
Step 1: Ingredients
The basis of this recipe really only requires a few basic ingredients, you can decide what else you'd like to add into your soup to make it as tasty as you'd like!
You will need:
-1 empty paper coffee cup: the size doesn't matter here, it all depends on how big of a portion you would like!
-1 Pack of Chow Mein stir-fry noodles: However you can switch these out for any type of quick-cooking noodle that you like
-1/2 tsp of vegetable base bouillon: Once again, you can substitute this for any flavor of bouillon you like! However, it will obviously no longer be vegan if you choose to use a beef or chicken bouillon
-Whatever spices and veggies you would like to add: This is your chance to get creative! However i used black pepper and chili flakes to give it some spice, as well as some corn kernels like they pack into the commercial cup of noodles
-1 pair of chopsticks: These are ideal for eating on the go, they slide right into the sipping slot on the coffee lid!
