Stylized version of a classic Asian soup. We love this at our house, the kids ask for it often.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute garlic and ginger in sesame oil just until they become fragrant.
  2. Add broth, seasoning packet and water. Stir to disolve seasoning.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Add bean sprouts and cellophane noodles.
  4. When noodles soften and begin to turn translucent, add pork, shrimp and cucumer. Simmer until shrimp is done and cucumber softens slightly.
  5. Garnish each bowl with a few green onion slices and a bit of crabmeat.

Inspired by your posting in the forum I decided to make this today (I didn't know Mah Mi until now). Very, very tasty! I only give it 4 stars because I had to make some exchanges (hubby is allergic to porc and cucumber and I can't eat noodles, so I took chicken and zucchini). I had no ramen seasoning either so made it up with spices I usually put in Asian dishes. But the main thing was to sauté garlic, ginger and sesame oil, I never made such a soup! This will be a keeper, thanks!
