Overview: Nongshim Soon Veggie Noodle Soup

Verdict: Nongshim’s Soon Veggie Noodle Soup tastes super similar to your traditional instant ramen. Despite that, it’s incredible that this is a fully vegan product! The noodles taste good. The soup tastes like it was made from meat flavoring but isn’t.

There’s a decent amount of vegetables but I wish there were more. This veggie noodle soup isn’t spicy at all so don’t worry about that. Although plain, this is a really good ramen for vegans and non-vegans alike!

Included Contents

Nongshim’s Soon Veggie Noodle Soup is a simple ramen. The cup is about halfway filled with ramen topped with a good amount of dried vegetables. There’s also an included packet of soup base powder.

Cooking Method #1: Microwave

There are two ways to cook this veggie noodle soup. The first method using the microwave (1000 W):

  1. Completely remove lid.

  2. Add soup base.

  3. Pour room temperature water up to the inside line.

  4. Microwave for 3 minutes (Cooking time may vary depending on microwave).

  5. Stir well and serve.

Caution: Product is very hot after heating. Never microwave without water!

The second method of cooking involves using hot water:

  1. Open lid half way.

  2. Add soup base.

  3. Pour hot water up to the inside line.

  4. Close lid for 3 minutes.

  5. Stir well and serve.

Caution: Handle with care to avoid spilling or burning yourself.

Noodle Texture

Depending on how soft or hard you like your noodles, Nongshim shows how long to cook your ramen.

  • Al Dente – 2 1/2 minutes
  • Medium – 3 minutes
  • Soft – 3 1/2 minutes

It’s a pretty cool addition since you don’t see it often on instant ramen packages.

Taste

I’ve decided to cook it a little longer since I like softer noodles. It doesn’t smell any different from any other cup noodles. I do see a little red in the broth so let’s see how spicy this is.

The noodles have a good texture. They’re not too thick or thin but just right. It’s pretty similar to every other instant noodle though. The vegetables included are a nice touch, especially the mushroom.

When you bite into this chewy mushroom, it gushes with flavorful broth. The carrots, corn, and green onion provide a small satisfying crunch. I wish there were more vegetables included though.

The soup tastes pretty similar to other instant/cup noodles. This savory vegetable broth has a lot of flavor. If someone fed this to me unknowingly, I would never guess this was vegan. In terms of spice, it has a very, very mild spice that kicks in after you swallow the broth. It’s nearly non-existent so anyone should be able to handle this.
