The vegetables sachet.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added coriander, mung bean sprouts, broccoli, mushroom, white onion and red bell pepper. The noodles hydrated nicely – good gauge and chew to them for an instant cup. The broth however was a little different. It was sweet and buttery – didn’t taste at all like vegetables to me to be honest. It was really sweet. Also, I found a little piece of plastic in with this cup – looks like the little locking mechanism for the included fork, although the included fork was as usual with the locking mechanism, so guess this was an extra. Glad I caught it. 1.25 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8934684029618.
