Instant Ramen Pouches


  • 4 packages instant noodles
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 6-8 mushrooms, sliced
  • 20 large shrimp, raw, cleaned
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (low sodium)
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar or mirin
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil (opt)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C)
  2. Lay out 4 slices of foil (approx 18" square)
  3. Place one pack of noodles in the centre of each foil square
    • note: this can be cut to 1/2 pack for smaller appetites or less carbs
  4. Layer the veggies on top of the noodles in this order: mushrooms, carrots, celery, onion
  5. Lay the shrimp on top of the pile
  6. Gather up the corners of the foil to make a pouch and place each one on a cookie sheet
  7. Mix the liquid ingredients together and distribute evenly among the packets
  8. Pinch the packets most of the way shut leaving a small hole for steam
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until shrimp is cooked

Protein Substitutions: Other proteins can be substituted for the shrimp. Raw proteins like chicken or beef should be sliced thin to ensure they cook. Veggie Substitutions: Any other veggies can be added as long as they are sliced appropriately. Softer items like zucchini can be sliced a bit thicker.
