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.)

Crunchy Ramen Sandwich

If you happen to be eating a sandwich and you miss the crunchy
goodness of uncooked Ramen, simply add the Ramen to the sandwich.
This works best with ham sandwiches, but will work with almost
any lunchmeat. However I do not recommend that you try it with
peanut butter. An additional benefit will be that you can use
the flavor packet to enhance the taste of the sandwich.

Tortilla Ramen

Submitted By: Mr. David B. Sanderson

Submitted From: Elkridge, Maryland

Cook ramen as normal, but add a dash of hot sauce while it
is cooking. During last 30 to 45 seconds of preparation (while
still in the water), add a handful of plain corn tortilla chips.
The goal is to get the chips soft, but not to have them disintegrate.
The best kind are the lightly salted variety, otherwise the salt
can overwhelm the corn and ramen flavor.

Ramen Pad Thai

Submitted By: Wayne Abraham

Submitted From: San Jacinto, CA, USA

    Ingredients:

  • One package of Ramen (any flavor)
  • one lime (juiced)
  • three packets of sugar(one tablespoon)
  • two packets of ketchup
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • one teaspoon of peanut butter
  • 2 or 3 green onions
  • two scrambled eggs (cooked)
  • small handful of bean sprouts

Place unbroken Ramen in a large bowl that holds
three to four cups of water. Add two and a half cups of water
and nuke in microwave for three minutes. Separate noodles with
a spoon, add green onions and bean sprouts, and nuke another two
minutes. Remove from microwave and let it set.
In a cup, mix lime juice, sugar, ketchup and fish sauce. Nuke
for two minutes, stir in peanut butter and nuke another minute.
Remove sauce from microwave and set it aside.
Grease another cup (oil, butter, PAM, Crisco, etc.) and crack
two eggs into it. Stir the eggs, being sure to break the yolks
and nuke for two minutes stirring every thirty seconds. If the
eggs are still runny, nuke and stir thirty seconds at a time until
eggs are done. Break up eggs into half inch chunks and set aside.
Drain water from the Ramen and veggies, add the eggs, pour
the sauce over the top and enjoy! NOTE: Fish sauce (Nam Pla) doesn’t
have to be refrigerated! A little splash here and there greatly
enhances the flavor on many dishes. It smells a lot fishier than
it tastes!

Submitted By: Wes Blackman

Submitted From: Lake Worth, Florida

    Ingredients:

  • 2 packets ramen
  • frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 can mushrooms
  • tofu
  • Newman’s Italian dressing

Take two packets of ramen and prepare in large
pot as usual with flavor packet. Drain water. Add one box of frozen
spinach and a can of mushrooms (do not put can or box in the mixture).
Break and mush up the frozen spinach with fork over hot noodles.
MIX. Add one block of semi-soft tofu and stir. Last step, add
enough Newman’s Italian dressing so the mixture shines like the
shimmer off of a still lake. Eat. This hearty meal serves two
hungry types. For fun, add a couple dashes of cayenne pepper.
