Making it healthier:

Reduce sodium: Since the main culprit for the high sodium content is the broth, you can try a few things:
Use low-sodium chicken and beef broth.
Reduce the amount of fish sauce and soy sauce in the recipe.
Add more vegetables for extra nutrients and fiber which can help you feel full. Leafy greens like spinach or bok choy are good options.
Protein boost: While the recipe provides some protein, you can add more for a more filling meal. Consider adding cooked chicken, shrimp, or tofu.
Whole grains: If you can find them, using whole wheat ramen noodles will increase the fiber content of the soup.


This recipe is a great base for customization. Here are some ideas:

Vegetables: Get creative! Add your favorite vegetables like sliced mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, or bean sprouts.
Spice it up: If you like things spicy, add more chili sauce, sriracha, or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
Egg preference: The recipe includes eggs as an option. You can poach them in the broth, boil them separately and add them whole, or even scramble them and add them on top.
Protein alternatives: If you don’t want to use fish sauce, you can try a splash of oyster sauce or a tablespoon of miso paste for a similar umami flavor.
