Thai Ramen Soup

Submitted By: Patricia Resnick (Graduated from Somona State, still eating Ramen)

    Ingredients:

  • 1 package BBQ Pork Ramen
  • Approximately 2 cups Water
  • 1 or 2 eggs (any color you like)
  • 1-2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 small handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2″x2″ cube tofu, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Asian Fish Sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp to 1 tsp Thai Red Hot Sauce (Sri Huacha)
  • Flavor Packet

Before you open Ramen, crush noodles gently with your flat hand or fist. Open package and discard packet, or save to add with seasonings to taste. Place crushed noodles in latge pyrex bowl, then add enough water to cover by 1/2″. Break eggs carefully into bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave 5 minutes for 1 egg, 5 minutes for 2 eggs. Remove from microwave and add tofu and seasonings (including flavor packet if desired) to taste. Stir gently if you don’t want to break egg yolks. Either allow to stand for 2 minutes to heat added ingredients through, or microwave for 1 additional minute. Serve in large bowls if for 2 people, serve in same bowl if 1 person eating informally. Saves on dishes that way. Note: Enough for 1 VERY HUNGRY person, or 2 normal people.

Note: All Ingredients are to taste or optional.
