I’ve seen Roy Choi on a few cooking shows before and he’s a darn good chef, but interestingly also a fan of instant ramen. His particular favorite involves scallions, a poached egg, and american cheese. The book sounds interesting. Roy has lived an interesting and sometimes difficult life and for him ramen provides a spiritual escape. To be honest, I don’t like american cheese, but otherwise this recipe sounds pretty simple and good.
This week I finally heard about “rice ramen” from Lotus Foods. Rice ramen is gluten free and frankly looks a bit more adult and probably healthy when compared to your average ramen. Recently I’ve been trying to eat less processed and more natural foods (which generally means little to no ramen), but this product looks promising. It’s organic and has less sodium than your average pack. The other thing is that with the different varieties of rice the noodles have lots of interesting colors that would be some interesting dishes. Take a look at these purple forbidden rice noodles.
As for the gluten, I’m not gluten free, but a lot of people are for a lot of reasons and I know that having a quick option is nice.
I have not seen these in stores around here but you can buy them online from the link above. If you guys try it please leave a comment about it and let me know how you like it.
