Great healthy vegan convenience food
This is a great little meal when you are pressed for time but still want a reasonably healthy option. When I first discovered the brand I was thrilled because it isn’t the easiest thing to find healthy, vegan convenience foods. I make these every once in a while when I am too tired to cook dinner. To make it a bit more of a meal I usually add cubed tofu and shredded, roasted seaweed. I also add soy sauce because it is too bland without it to me. I know that this goes against some of McDougalls teachings, but I can’t help it. This is one of the few processed foods that we eat, so I don’t feel terrible about the extra sodium. This is also kid friendly. It is one of my 2-year-olds favorite things in the world. She would be extremely happy if this was all I fed her. I have also introduced the product to my mom, who is a procedure nurse, and doesn’t have a lot of time to grab lunch most days. She loves that she can just add water, heat, and eat. I also like having a few of these on hand when we are traveling so that we still have an option if we can’t order vegan food at a restaurant and don’t have a grocery store close by.
Might be worth an occassinal drive to the big city for things like this, kodiak flapjack to go and santa cruz …
My vegan daughter loves these. This is her cup o noodles. But much healthier. However you can get this at a sprouts, vons or ralphs for about 2 bucks. Just had delivered by insta cart for a mere 1.99. Some of these grocery items are outrageously priced. Maybe for folks that live in small towns and don’t have options? Might be worth an occassinal drive to the big city for things like this, kodiak flapjack to go and santa cruz lime juice.
Great for on the go vegan diet with a few cons
These are super convenient and easy to take to work for my lunch. I love miso soup, but alone, it’s not filling enough. The noodles in this product really turn it into a hearty option. The ingredients and calories also make it great for any vegan diet. A couple of cons: I find that the flavor packet doesn’t quite give it enough miso taste, so I always add some extra miso soup powder. Also they’re a bit pricey. I’m currently trying to find a cheaper substitute but not having much luck. As of now, they are still the best product on the market for a vegan diet on the go.
Miso Ramen – I like it!
I felt the taste was “okay level” at first. And I did not notice any tofu in it either. But then at the second trial, I added dried wakame seaweed and bunch of greens like green onion and spinach during the last 45 seconds (I cooked it for 2 min. 45 sec.) Then this noodle dish became delicious!! The soup tastes so good and smells good. A few people in my office actually lured by the smell into the break room where I was eating the noodle. The sodium content is acceptable if you don’t finish the soup. By the way the label on the cup indicates it contains 2 servings – its a little stretch. But overall, I do like this noodle, and will buy again.
Best cup of soup- add ginger
This is my favorite on-the-go cup of soup that is healthy and fulfilling. I like to add additional powdered ginger to give it some extra flavor but it is good without. I was surprised how filling it is. I use it as a mid-day “snack.”
Love Dr. McDougall products
This is one of my favorite Dr. McDougall products. I love that the soup is loaded with noodles, has a mild flavor and is a breeze to make for lunch. Like most of this line, the soup cup’s contents are dry and the user must add water and the flavor packet and pop the cup in the microwave for several minutes. I generally think the company suggests too much water for the products and that is no exception for the miso soup. I always place less water than recommended in the soup cup in order to produce a slightly thicker broth that is more concentrated in flavor. The miso soup may have too much sodium for some but calorie wise, this cannot be beat. With a little garden salad on the side, the user gets a very satisfying lunch. One annoying aspect of McDougall products is that all the “big cups” are two servings. The contents, however, really seem equivalent to one serving. Just be sure to double the calories if you keep a calorie log or are trying to keep an accurate picture of your sodium intake.
Yummy and Good Ingredients
It’s a tasty ramen w/o the unhealthy ingredients. The only fault I found is the cup doesn’t hold up well if you want to heat until the noodles are really soft. But it isn’t a problem heating in another container that can take the heat or setting the paper cup into another cup before heating or microwaving 2 mins, 30 secs at a time. I just ordered the pad thai version. It doesn’t taste like any pad thai I’ve had but it may be a variation I’m unfamiliar with. It is very tasty as eveyone says.
Misleading Nutrient Label
Read the nutrition facts closely. If the serving per container is ‘2’ and the listed values are ‘per serving’, then you must DOUBLE the numbers if you consume the whole container because you are actually eating 2 servings. For example, sodium is 680mg, not 340mg. Carbs is 36g, not 18g, etc. Nevertheless, my family enjoys this product. We’ll just cut back on having it too frequently.
