Two Minute Noodles are loved by kid. This homemade instant noodles recipe tastes better than the store-bought version and none of the nasties. Noodle cups are fun, and even better wehn they are homemade in a mason jar!

Ingredients Notes & Substitutions

  • Bone broth: You can use beef or chicken broth, store-bought or homemade.
  • Noodles: I have used fine-cut egg noodles also known as ramen noodles in this recipe. But it works just as well with rice noodles or bean vermicelli if you need the recipe to be wheat and or gluten-free.
  • Soy sauce: If you need your recipe to be gluten-free be sure to substitute for tamari or gluten-free soy sauce.
  • Toasted seaweed: I tear up a nori sheet it adds a lovely umami flavour.
  • Frozen mixed vegetables: This can be substituted for corn kernels, frozen peas, and sliced capsicum.

Top Tips

Here is how you can make these homemade 2-minute noodles perfectly every time!

  • Screwing the lid on the jar will mean that your noodles cook quicker
  • If you are impatient and can't wait the five minutes, you can of course remove the lid and pop the jar in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Rice noodles are equally nice in this recipe
  • When I'm making this sort of meal for me, I like to add a little bit of chilli oil and/or sesame oil into the jar.
