Nutrition Profile:


  • 3 cups water

  • 1 cup frozen broccoli

  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen-noodle soup mix

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

  • 1 large soft-boiled egg, halved (see Tip)


  1. Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add broccoli; cook for 2 minutes. Add noodles (reserve the seasoning packet); cook until the noodles are tender, about 3 minutes more. Drain the broccoli and noodles and return to the pan.

  2. Add sesame oil, sesame seeds and half of the seasoning packet (discard the remainder or reserve for another use); toss well to combine. Transfer to a bowl; top with egg and serve.


Tip: To soft-boil eggs: Place eggs in a saucepan; add water to just cover the eggs. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes for perfect soft-set yolks.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
