We’ve all been warned about the dangers of consuming too much instant cup noodles, and yet they were a staple during our college days or when we simple don’t have time to have a proper meal. To help you enjoy more of those instant cups of joy, we have compiled a list of simple cup noodles that you can make at home. These are fun lunch options that you can be packed ahead into jars or heatproof tupperware, and because you get to decide what goes into them, they can be free of preservatives, MSG and other harmful additives. Youmee’s high-protein all-natural Plain Noodles are perfect for experimenting with in these recipes.Add in plenty of greens and protein, and you won’t have to avoid your favourite snack again.

2- Spicy Kimchi Beef Flavour instant noodle recipe - Serious Eats

2) Spicy kimchi beef instant noodles

Inspired by the famous Shin Ramyun instant noodle, this kimchi and beef flavour noodle recipe can easily be made ahead. If you don’t take beef, we imagine some marinated chicken would work just as beautifully. Bring this to work and you’ll gather a crowd – who wouldn’t be impressed by homemade Korean instant noodles?

3 - Vegetable instant noodle recipe - Londoner

3) Vegetable instant noodle

Packed with Asian flavours using miso and tom yum pastas, the recipe also calls for ingredients like mixed vegetables, leftovers meat of your choice, bean sprouts and hot sauce. We love it. For vegetarians, just replace the meat with some tofu and dig in!

5) Vietnamese beef pho recipe

We definitely can’t miss out a Vietnamese pho recipe. A real pho will take some time and patience to prepare, but who says we can’t enjoy an instant treat for the days when we’re busy (or just a little lazy)? This will make a fun lunch for the kids to bring to school too.

6 - Vegetables and Miso-Sesame Broth - Serious Eats

6) Vegetables and miso-sesame broth

This vegetarian sesame-miso soup flavour requires a base of grated ginger, miso paste, soy sauce and sesame tahini. Other than the suggested toppings, we’d love to try it with spinach, kale or broccoli too.

7 )Shiitake rice noodle soup

This shiitake broth recipe definitely caught our attention and it’s also the only one we found using corn. The broth is made from the leftover liquid of canned corn and steeped mushroom, as well as mushroom flavoured soy sauce. Interesting, yes?

8 - Thai Coconut Curry With Shrimp Instant Noodles

8) Thai Coconut Curry With Shrimp Instant Noodles

We’ve tried this Thai-inspired recipe to great success, although we did substitute the chicken base with a flavourful vegetarian stock. Seriouseats takes their DIY instant noodles seriously, and so should you.

9) Gluten Free Instant Noodle Cups

A little something for our gluten-free friends. What we really like is the DIY Bouillon Powder recipe for this dish. It’s packed with flavours and the “cup” is also filled with healthy ingredients like baby spinach, carrots, tofu or chicken and miso paste.

10 - Sausage, White Bean & Kale Soup

10) Sausage, White Bean & Kale Soup
The Domestic Geek

This soup recipe is slightly different than the others listed. You can use any kind of cooked sausages for this recipe and mix it with some beans. The original recipe doesn’t have noodles in it but you can add noodles to make the soup more filling. Just finish it off with some kale and chili flakes before you add some hot water to it.
