  1. In a medium pot over medium heat, add in about 2-3 tablespoons of filtered water. Once heated, add the onions, garlic, and carrots, and sauté for about 3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the ginger, mushrooms, and broccoli, along with 1/4 cup more water to prevent burning, and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable broth, remaining water, soy sauce and rice vinegar and bring to a boil.
  4. Once the water is boiling, add the ramen noodles and cook according to packaging directions– ours took about 4 minutes to cook.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach until it has wilted.
  6. Divide between two bowls, garnish with the green onion and dig in!
