Yakisoba noodles...what I do with the veggie packets

My family loves the Yakisoba noodles...but I'm the only one who puts the veggie packet in when I cook them. Everyone else leaves it on the counter, because they don't like it.

So...I save them in a container in my cabinet. Then, when I'm making vegetable soup, I toss them in! My vegetable soup is never the same twice anyway...because it depends on what veggies I have on hand. So, adding some extra cabbage, peas and corn never hurts!

**This is ONLY for the vegetable packets...not for the flavor packets. They are separate packets in the Yakisoba noodles.

That's a great idea! My family doesn't like the veggies either. I just save them and put double in mine because I do like them.

Great idea! I love vegetable soup. I don't love the Yakisoba, though. I do ♥ the Nissin brand Chow Mein noodles. Yum yum. The Yakisoba is too much like ramen to me, and I'd just as soon have that than the Yakisoba.

I find that the ones I buy are sometimes a little much for me taste and/or spice wise too, so I just use part of the flavor packet. They are more of a soy sauce type mixture though so you probably couldn't do bullion with them anyway. But I do that sometimes with the ramen, and vice versa. I will borrow the flavor packet when I've run out of bullion lol..

Great idea!

I always use way less of the flavor packets. No reason you have to add it all!

Same here! I probably use less than half of the flavor packet. I'm just glad that the veggie packet is separate from the flavor packet!

I guess if you were really thrifty you could save the left overs from the flavor packets in a small jar, then you could use them in the soup with the leftover veggie packets lol. But that might be beyond even my level of frugal lol. Still.... :wink7:

Another thing you could do is rehydrate them in some boiling water for several minutes and put them in fried rice.

My kids love the Yakisoba. I add a beaten egg to them with the water to add some protein.
