Expert Tips

Although this recipe does not use the seasoning packet from the ramen soup mix, those following a vegan diet may want to look for the ramen noodle soup mixes that do not contain animal products in the seasoning.

Use one 11-ounce can Green Giant® Niblets® whole Kernel Sweet Corn, drained, in place of the baby corn nuggets.

Baby corn nuggets taste fresher after the salty brine is rinsed off with cold water.
