1 Shrimp flavor Ramen pack
6 Generic frozen chicken nuggets
Prepare the noodles while the chicken nuggets are cooking (for best results bake or deep fry the chicken). Add crushed Ramen noodles to boiling water and turn off stove, allow the ramen to stand. Cut the chicken nuggets into 4 way pieces. Next, strain noodles and mix in the chicken and the shrimp flavor pack. Add 2Tbsp of honey, 1Tbsp of mustard, and 2-4Tsp of chipotle sauce. You may need to add a small amount of hot water if it is too dry.
Here’s the link to the 9 News story on ramen. Nelson Garcia came up to my house yesterday and I did manage to find some steak leftover in the fridge. Finding leftover steak is so cool, it’s like finding $10 in your pocket.
The 9 News van is on the way to my house to watch me cook some ramen recipes and discuss the state of ramen. I had about 90 minute notice and they caught me with no ramen in the house! I ran to the store and I plan on making a soup and a stir-fry style dish as well.
PS – 9 News is the best local news channel in Denver, regardless of whether or not I’m on!
Boil your ramen noodles as normal and instead of adding your chicken flavoring, add a combination of the two spices to the boiled water. Add a good amount of the two spices and stir until well mixed (actualy amount is up to you, but start with 1 tsp each). Let the noodles soak in the flavor for a few minutes then drain. The taste reminds me of the sweet tangy taste of mesquite sauce and a funion. Very tasty! Note: You can taste the broth to see the flavor, but the taste in the noodles will be less intense than the broth.
There are probably infinitely many types of curry powder, so if anyone tries this, be sure to comment on which kind you use.

1 tbs Cream Cheese
1-2 tbs Milk (to get consistency right)
Microwave noodles in water with contents of spice packet for 6-7 minutes. Next, drain the broth from noodles. While noodles are warm, add cubed cream cheese, milk, and spices, then stir to combine. Microwave for another 30 seconds to finish melting the cheese. Stir. Enjoy.
As I guessed earlier, I’ve been delayed in making new posts since I now have a new family member. he was born on Monday, no wait, Tuesday at about 5am. I haven’t been eating ramen since the in-laws are here cooking roasts just about every day!
NISSIN FOOD PRODUCTS CO. (TSE:2897) will likely lift the prices of its ramen noodles and other products again if the government increases the wholesale prices of imported wheat as expected this fall, President Koki Ando said Friday. Nissin Food “will have no choice but to pass on (higher costs) by raising product prices,” Ando told reporters.
The full story is here, but there isn’t much more to it. Stock up now!
NPR’s All Things Considered did a segment this morning written by Andy Raskin on the 50th anniversary of ramen and has some interesting commentary on Momofuku Ando’s funeral and impact on people. Mr. Raskin has a new book coming out soon called, “The Ramen King and I: How the Inventor of Instant Noodles Fixed My Love Life”, sounds interesting to me! The link also has an audio version, but I can’t seem to directly link to it.
Someone sent me this Youtube video featuring some historical references to China in the Olympics and ramen. I guess ramen is now part of Chinese Olympic Pride? I have no idea what they are saying in the ad, but I am sure that the Chinese gymnastics team did not eat much ramen.
I was at Whole Paycheck Foods yesterday and I saw a few different flavors of Tofu ramen. Has anyone ever tried this? Are there actual bits of tofu in the package? I wonder if it ends up tasting like miso soup, which has tofu in it.
