Open the package of ramen noodles and place into a microwave safe bowl.
Add the flavor packet included if desired and discard the packaging.
Pour in water/broth to cover.
Add any optional additions as desired (except for green onions, which go in at the end).
Microwave the ramen noodles for 1 minute on full power, followed by 30 second intervals, until steaming hot. (Note: times may vary by microwave strength, so add extra time for tabletop microwaves, and reduce time for powerful microwaves.)
Using oven mitts to prevent burns, carefully remove the hot ramen from the microwave.
Garnish with optional green onions. Serve with a large spoon and chopsticks.
