I was really craving something warm and soothing for dinner and I had some ramen noodles so I decided to give this a shot but with my own twist on it...I took this from quick to ridiculously fast by cooking everything in the microwave. I cooked the ramen noodles according to the package and about 2 minutes into the cook time, I added some frozen broccoli, frozen mixed vegetables and a cup of vegetable juice. I continued to cook for the rest of the ramen cook time, plus another minute---I like my veggies still a lil crunchy. Then I seasoned to taste with some salt, pepper, spices and a lil soy sauce...OMG! This taste like a vegetable-beef soup my mom and grandma used to fix when I was a was sooooo good...I was just going to eat a bowl, but I ate it all in one sitting!! This will definitely be one of my quickie meals again in the future!
