No Flavour Packet Ramen

Submitted By: Marc Sastre

Submitted From: Ottawa, Ontario Canada

    Ingredients:

  • 1 (or more) packets of Ramen (doesn’t matter which brand/type)
  • 2 pinches of parsely
  • Optional: Meat (chicken/beef/ham/pork/whatever) –
  • salt and pepper to taste

Prepare ramen like normal, but let cook an extra minute till
noodles get a touch mushy (i said a TOUCH! Very important here!).
Remove from heat and let simmer KEEPING the water it boiled in.
Add parsely, meat, salt and pepper. Stir till all mixed and let
sit for two minutes so meat warms up and sauce thickens a touch.
Voila!!

Cuke-N-Clam Rapid Ramen

Submitted By: Ami Chen Mills

Submitted From: San Jose, California

    Ingredients:

  • One cucumber
  • One package ramen oriental or your fave flave.
  • One can of minced or chopped clams.

Peel and chop cucumber into small cubes. Boil ramen. While
cooking, drain the clams. Add cukes about 2 minutes into boiling.
Add flavor packet. Just before you turn off the heat, add the
clams but don’t cook for long cause they get tough. Stir and serve.

Note: This is, true to essential ramen nature, a super-fast ramen
recipe that will satisfy most Asians (like myself) who love wintermelon
soups but can’t cook Chinese for beans. (Soybeans, that is.)

Campbell’s Soup Ramen with Cheese

Submitted By: James Spann

Submitted From: Dallas, Texas

Cook up the Ramen as you would normally. Do not use the spice
packet yet…then drain the water out. Find a can of Campbell’s
Chunky soup and some cheddar cheese. Put the soup and Ramen into
a pan and grate the cheese in with it. Simmer for a little while
and pour in the spice packet. Stir vigorously. Once it’s hot enough,
eat it.

Dole Ramen

Submitted By: Marc Sastre

Submitted From: Ottawa, Ontario Canada

    Ingredients:

  • 1 ramen pack w/flavour pack (any flavour – my fav. is shrimp)
  • pat of butter or margarine
  • Parsely (really cheap)
  • Cheese slices (most can be gotten for cheap)
  • salt and pepper if required
  • Optional: 1/2 Tablespoon of hot flavoured oil

Cook ramen as normal. Drain fluids and return to pot. Mix in
margarine, parsely, oil as well as salt and pepper if needed (not
usually). Bring to a simmer and break up cheese slices and drop
crumbles into ramen. Stir till melted. Use rubber spatula to get
all the cheese and drop into a bowl. Serve and enjoy!

Note: I have always left the water from the cooking in the
Ramen, i find that it keeps the flavour and consistency and makes
the ramen that much more appealing.

Submitted By: Kam Kashani

Submitted From: SGI, California

    Ingredients:

  • 1 package ramen (I use Sapporo Ichiban)
  • 1 egg

Bring 3 cups water to boil. Add ramen noodles and cook until done.
Reduce heat to simmer and add seasoning packet. Mix.
Crack open egg and drop into ramen. Using chopsticks or a fork,
gently stir egg in a slow circle around the pan. Be gentle. It’s
a fine art to get the egg spread out into threads; not too clumpy,
but not too broken up either.

Trail Ramen

Submitted By: Brian Gorman

Submitted From: University of Missouri-Rolla

Obtain a large recloseable (made from recycled plastic) bag
and add UNCOOKED ramen. If the ramen is cooked, it will be moldy
by the time you get to your destination (personal experience).
You may want to crush the ramen at this time, but it is not necessary.
Then, add peanuts, pretzels, M&Ms (melt in your mouth, not
in your ramen), walnuts, dried papaya, raisins, close the top
of the bag and shake rigorously until homogeneous. Add a small
amount of water to just coat the surface of the entire mixture
and add a small amount of powdered sugar and chili powder. Shake
again and you are ready to hit the trail!
