Vegetarian Chinese Noodle Soup

I wanted to make Chinese noodle soup using a recipe on Yummly since I had some leftover noodles. I ended up not having most of the ingredients that recipe required so I had to improvise. This noodle recipe was my creation. This Chinese soup is also how I learned that I like ramen noodles. I have been making variations of noodles using ramen ever since!

This is a very simple vegetarian Chinese soup recipe. It does not have a lot of ingredients. The cilantro is my favorite part!
