Hearty Ramen

Submitted By: Louis Floyd

Put ramen noodles and flavor packet in pan with cold water–just
enough to cover the noodles–and bring to a boil. Crack one egg
into it once the noodles start to get soft. Add a heaping teaspoon
of miso paste if you have it! Meanwhile, in the bowl you’ll be
eating out of, put in 1-3 teaspoons of your favorite margarine,
1/2–1 teaspoon of sesame oil (the dark stuff!), some hot pepper
essence or Japanese hot pepper sprinkles, then some freshly-ground
black pepper to taste. Continue cooking noodles until there is
only a small amount of liquid left and the noodles are really
soft. Pour this into your bowl of spices, mix it all up, and feast!
(For those who like more nourishing ramens, you could add some
mixed veggies, onion, garlic, etc., along with the egg while cooking.)
