6 Ways to Ramp Up Ramen Noodles [RECIPES]
Good Morning Everyone! ❤
I hope you’re having a lovely Thursday. Happy Candlemas and Imbolc to those celebrating. Today I wanted to do a recap about ramen because around here… it’s a staple in my pantry. Ramen gets a bad rap for being horribly unhealthy, and I’ll admit that it’s not exactly a superstar. But is it cheap? Yes. Is it versatile? Oh very much so. And I’m about to show you how you can ditch that little seasoning packet and take those noodles to the next level. Ready? Let’s go!
This soup was a complete accident as I was trying to make another recipe. The result was a pile of green mush that I tossed into miso ramen. LOL! I couldn’t have predicted that this soup would taste as good as it did. It was divine and I know you’ll love it just as much too.
Every year I make an annual batch of kimchi. In fact, we make a whole day out of it like traditional kimjung! It’s really fun. So then I have these giant vats of kimchi just waiting to be devoured. This kimchi ramen is spicy, soothing, simple, and so good for your digestion. Eat those fermented foods, my friends. Your body will thank you.
Spicy black bean paste rounds out the broth to this dish and can be found in any Asian food store. I loved the earthy flavors in this soup. You would never think it was a simple pack of ramen. Toss on some green onions, cooked mushrooms, and sesame seeds and you have a meal fit for a king!
Don’t shy away from this dish simply because of it’s looks. If you’re craving pad thai but money is tight…. behold this recipe. It’s spicy from Sriracha, creamy and chunky from peanut butter, and deep in flavor thanks to Chinese five spice. This will definitely be a go to when you’re in a rush. 😉
I make stir fry at least once a week around here. It’s really popular and versatile. I also never buy lo mein noodles. (Who has the time to find them?). Instead, I use instant ramen noodles to make this easy, yet nutritious dish. Toss in some frozen veggies, soy sauce, garlic powder, and spices and get cooking! You’ll be SO glad that you did.
This one is probably my favorite. (And it’s only 2 ingredients! Weeee!). “Cheezy” noodles made with nutritional yeast and a pack of instant chicken ramen. I swoon…. I dance…. I twirl around with bowl in hand because it’s just THAT good!! Mmm 🙂 It makes me a very happy Noob Chef and I know you will love it too. Top mine with frozen peas, spinach, and fresh green onions please ❤ 😉
I hope you all enjoyed these recipes. Stay tuned for more delicious dishes coming up daily, and as always, keep on cooking! ❤
