I just looooove the flavor of the Oriental flavor ramen, but don't want the MSG or high salt. Here is a copycat that tastes just like it, without the sodium. I use it in everything now, and add salt to taste.

Love the idea of using no MSG. But... to get the taste I was looking for, I had to add MSG. So, the first time I tried this, I crushed a chicken bouillon cube and sprinkled it in. With that added, it was a spot-on copycat. Which kind of defeats the point, I know. :) But at least I have the option of using as little as I want. Now I usually make my soup by boiling 2 1/4 cups water with 1 bouillon cube (or 1 tsp concentrated chicken stock) and one teaspoon of the seasoning. Then I add a 2 oz block of rice vermicelli noodles. When I eat it, I add extra seasoning to taste, and a few squirts of sriracha sauce.

This was really good but beware the amount of pepper! I used only 1 Tbsp and even that was too much. By the way, did I miss something or does the recipe state anywhere how much to seasoning to use per serving? I ended up using 1 teaspoon for a standard package of ramen noodles and it came out perfect. I like shrimp ramen so I used a little clam base in the water and I added a few shakes of soy sauce. It was yummy!

I used 1/4 teaspoon of the powders with a dash of pepper for one pack of noodles. I did add a low salt chicken bullion cube, but it had to be less sodium than the little included packet. It tasted very good.
