Quick Ramen – Yup, Just As Quick As the 10 Cent Packages

009And so much better for you.  That’s actually not saying much.  Have you seen the ingredients in those Top Ramen packages?  Yikes.  Yet….this girl right here, can’t get enough of it.  I know I’m suppose to be all “green” and eat only wholesome foods but kids, I have a little confession to make.

I’m the human

that loves

dipping her French fries

in a large chocolate frosty.

I’m the girl

who thinks that frying an egg

in bacon fat

should not be left only

to camping mornings.

I’m the person

who thinks that

marshmallow fluff

should be eaten

with a spoon.

The woman who

wants an over-easy egg

added to any burger

she’s about to eat.

In other words, come on!  Who’s perfect?

I decided that ten cents a package was just too much money to spend, damn it.  No.  Actually, you can’t beat the price.  Not this recipe anyways.  But what this recipe beats, is nutrition.  Takes about the same amount of time, costs a little bit more

B.U.T.

it tastes better and it doesn’t have ingredients you are unable to pronounce.

This is a one person serving.  A quick, healthy, substantial lunch.  It can be made 100% organic as I have.  Feel free to get frisky with this bowl.  Add some shrimp, chicken, beef, tofu…..the ideas are endless.  More vegetables, use beef broth or vegetable broth….let those creative juices flow.  Here is the recipe for which I just came up with as I was jonesin for a bowl of Asian-style noodle soup.

Ingredients

0103 cups organic chicken broth

2 tablespoons soy sauce

splash of sesame oil

2 scallions, sliced nice

1 bunch organic authentic Japanese buckwheat noodles

Preparation

  1. Add first 4 ingredients into a small saucepan, bring to a boil
  2. Add noodles, cook just until tender (careful, they cook quick).
Noodles won't fit at first.  Finagle them as they start cooking to get them emerged...

High Altitude Adjustment

  • None

Compost

  • Scallion trimmings

Recycle

  • Any empty containers such as the chicken broth carton, soy sauce bottle, sesame oil bottle, noodle packaging.

Reuse

  • Nada-that bowl should be slurped clean.
