I voted 'depends on flavor' just because I boil it with butter in the water. Drain just about all of it & dump the rest in my bowl. Add flavor & stir. Top it off with the crunchys that are in the bag. :D

Also my grandmother make a BADA** slaw with them. Ill make myself sick from eating it!!!

I boil the water seperatly in a tea kettle first, then I open the flavor pouch, pour it ontop of the noodles in a clump, and then add veggies and spices or what not depending on the flavor. I then pour the boiling water on it and let it simmer untill the noodles are soft. It sort of cooks the flavor into them. Then I scoop the noodles (with chopsticks) into a bowl and pour enough broth on into the bowl with the noodles so that it's half under the noodles. Not too much broth.

I dont really remember off hand but its the shiznit of slaws. Ill snap a pic & try to find the recipe. Its got two heights of flavor. The first is a few hours after it was put in the icebox & the noodles are still hard & the other is 24 hours after it was made when ALL the flavors come out & slap ya!!!

you gotta leave it unstrained. the water has alot of flavor in it. i normally throw in some chili pepper and other spices when i eat it.

unstrained. I like the soup, but 50% sodium is a bit high for me. Also, if you strain out most of the soupy bit, then add the base, it's too strong for me ^^

that hydrated flavor dust is what keeps the worlds college population alive!

With it being 110* on the carport at this time of the day a little extra salt wont hurt. Plus its flavored salt, kinda like kool-aid!!

None yet... but in a while if you keep it up, your setting yourself up for clogged arteries and heart falure.

I thought it was funny they used the word "picante" on a japanese food... since picante is spanish for spicy. :D

btw ace... that's a ton of onion. If I ever feel like working hard on cookery I'd chop it finely.

I LOVE onions... if it's too fine I can't find it with my chopsticks and it makes me sad. :(
