Otaku Ramen

Submitted By: Dustin Rodriguez

Submitted From: Graduated, still eating ramen

    Ingredients:

  • Instant Ramen, any flavor
  • 3 Eggs
  • Sliced Water Chestnuts
  • Bean Sprouts
  • 2 Cups Rice
  • Optional: Colossal Black Olives

Fry the 3 eggs, breaking the yolks. Cook the Ramen as if you were going to eat them alone, add flavor packet. Cook rice, then drain it thoroughly. Put rice into bottom of large bowl, then pour Ramen and broth on top (do this before the rice has a chance to get too dry and sticky). Shred the eggs, add in the bean sprouts and sliced water chestnuts, and mix into the Ramen noodles. I also like to put colossal sized black olives into the mix but that throws off the asian bent, so you can do without if you wish.

Note: I’ve only used chicken and beef ramen, but I’m sure any type you like would work.

Ramen Spicy Hot Spaghetti thing

Submitted By: Teenage Helmet Party

Submitted From: Richmond, VA

    Ingredients:

  • 2 packs of Ramen noodles
  • Spaghetti Sauce (preferably pre-flavored with basil or something)
  • 1 or 2 vegie-patties Morning Star Grillers
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Worstechire sauce
  • Curry powder
  • Dried basil
  • Optional: 6-pack of Milwaukee’s Best

Pitch flavor packet and cook crushed noodles in microwave for about six or
seven minutes to make them really soft. Then remove the noodles and cook the meat pattie separately for about thirty seconds in the microwave (I use the grillers because they taste good, but you can use any kind of real meat you want). Then drain the noodles, throw the meat on top, and cover with spaghetti sauce. Use generous portions of curry powder, tabasco, worstechire on top of
pile of spaghetti sauce and mix until you see no discernable difference between the ingredients. Sprinkle basil on top. Microwave for about another minute and a half (add an extra thirty seconds if using a second chunk of meat) or so. Not as good as real spaghetti but a lot faster, with all the protein and vitamins. It’ll be really spicy, so use the cheap beer to cool your mouth off if necessary.

Very filling.

3-Minute Soup

Submitted By: Kedimac

Submitted From: Lewisville, TX

    Ingredients:

  • 1 Oriental flavor ramen noodles
  • 1/2 lemon
  • cilantro
  • Tabasco or green hot sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • Optional: 1 carrot

Boil the noodles in a reasonable amount of water. While they are cooking, assuming you have a bowl, squeeze the lemon into the bowl and add a little cilantro and pepper. If you are using Tabasco, add a few drops; if you are using green hot sauce, add a big splat. Chop the carrot and add it and flavor packet to the soup, which should be done now. (if you don’t have a bowl, it’s 5-minute soup, because you need to add all the ingredients at the end of the
cooking time for best flavor.)

Note: Do not substitute sesame or mushroom flavor ramen. Yucky.

Volcano Ramen

Submitted By: Brian

Submitted From: Westland, MI

    Ingredients:

  • 1 Package of Ramen Noodles (any flavor)
  • Red Hot or Tabasco Sauce (Red Hot gives more flavor)
  • Crushed Red Pepper (Also add to taste)
  • Half a jar of plain spaghetti sauce
  • Optional: Parmesean cheese

First boil the noodles as you usually would, add the flavoring, then put into a small bowl and let it sit for about 5 minutes to let the broth soak into the noodles. Then drain the noodles and cover with the cooked spaghetti sauce. Add hot sauce and red pepper as you like it. Add parmesean cheese if you want to take away some of the spice. Mix together and enjoy!

Note: My personal favorite is Chili Ramen noodles with Red Hot sauce. It’s very flavorful and still spicy enough for me. If you use any of the picante flavors you don’t need to add the red pepper.
