Ramen in shirt.woot.com Derby

UPDATE AGAIN: One of these awesome shirts (the first one listed below). You can buy it for $15 here, starting on Oct 3.

shirt.woot.com has a “shirt derby” where you can vote to pick the best designs which then will presumably be made into t-shirts. I don’t know all the details and can’t seem to find them, but there are at least three great Ramen themed shirts in the contest.

Shirt 1 – Almost Too Complicated – directions for cooking, in case you forget.

Shirt 2 – Midnight Noodles

Shirt 3 – The Essential College Shirt – featuring microwave directions!

UPDATE: One of the ramen shirts, Almost Too Complicated, is in the finals. Not sure if voting is over or not, I was going to post this earlier but their site was broken for a day.

Sopa Mexicana de Ramen

This might be a good way to turn a regular ramen pack into a “picante” version. I suspect taco seasoning is mainly chili powder and cayenne pepper, with maybe some cumin. I also figure you could use a bullion cube here if you follow the re-hydration instructions.

  • 1 package chicken flavored ramen – I like to use the ones in the Styrofoam cups for convenience and veggies!
  • Taco seasoning in a packet – you will NOT be using all of it
  • 1-14 ounce can of chicken broth – you can use water, but I like the added flavor

I absolutely love Mexican soups. I, however, cannot afford to buy the fresh ingredients needed to make them, so I often miss the flavor and spiciness. One day, the product of a little experimentation came about, and I now have an almost daily lunch option that satisfies my taste buds. 1. Open a can of chicken broth, pour in saucepan with enough taco seasoning to taste (I like mine spicy and use about a tablespoon) and stir to dissolve. 2. Heat to boiling, stirring so spices distribute evenly throughout broth. 3. Either add noodles and seasoning packet to saucepan and cook until tender or add water to Styrofoam cup and let stand three minutes. Then eat up! I like to have a tortilla to tear off and grab some noodle with. It makes it a bit more filling and almost authentic.

Coconut Ramen Pudding

Okay, I’ve had rice pudding before, so maybe this would work, maybe? I don’t like coconut, so I’m not going to try it.

  • 1 pack ramen, finely crushed, no flavor packet
  • 1-1/2 c water
  • 1 t. soy protein powder (optional)
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/4 c. brown (or white) sugar
  • 1/4 c. coconut

Crush ramen. Hint: leave it in the bag while crushing. A rolling pin might help too. Combine ingredients and bring to a boil for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. For a smoother pudding, increase the cooking time (add water as needed). Or, put the pudding in a blender.
