So much more than ordinary.


College/Budget cuisine: Ramen noodles

5 stars from 1 rating of Ramen noodles

Your favorites...just better

Being in college is a big step in a persons life. A time when one learns how to be self reliant and provide for themselves and that includes learning how to cook. Now you don't have to be some 5 star chef in order to be able to put food on your table, you just need to have a little imagination and a well stocked fridge and spice cabinet. Today, I will be giving you a recipe on a staple in every college students pantry, Ramen noodles.

Ramen noodles are a college kids best-friend because it is both cheap and also a no brain-er to make you mess this up and I am really going to question how you got into college); which comes in handy when your brain is fried from pulling an all-nighter studying for that exam worth fifty percent of your grade. By adding just a few ordinary ingredients, you can really spruce up that noodle soup.

What you will need.

  • one pack ramen noodles, your favorite flavor (chicken goes good with everything)
  • 1/4 cup carrots, matchsticks work best
  • 1/4 cup spinach, baby leaves are my favorite. Kale is also a good substitute
  • one egg, large sized
  • anything else is optional and to your liking i.e. mushrooms, celery..., experiment! College is the time where you figure out who you are and what you like.

Here is what you do.

  1. Set aside a quarter cup of your matchstick carrots and a quarter cup of your spinach, along with your large egg.
  2. In a pot add two cups of water (or less, it is really up to you and how much liquid you want in your soup) and bring to a boil. Add the carrots first because they are hard and firm and need a little more cooking time in order to make them nice and soft. Also, add your egg into the pot. We want the egg to be soft boiled so the yolk is still soft and melts and runs into the soup, giving it an awsome taste.
  3. After about 3 minutes add the ramen noodles to the pot along with the seasoning packet that it comes with. Stir lightly so that your egg can cook evenly and also so that the season packet you add will mix with the water.
  4. After you noodles have finished cooking, you can add the spinach. Do not let the spinach get over cooked, the last thirty (30) seconds of your cook time is really the best time to add the spinach. The leaves do not get too wilted.
  5. Spoon out the egg and peel. The result you are looking for is soft boiled. IF, you are unfamiliar to what a soft boiled egg is, it is when the white of the egg is cooked and the yellow yolk is still runny, like a sunny side up egg.
  6. Serve in a bowl, cut your egg in half and place on top. Enjoy! I like it hot an spicy, so I usually thow in some hot sauce at this point to give it a kick, along with some soy sauce and some balsamic vinegar. Yes, I know, it sounds crazy.....CRAZY GOOD! To each his own.

So many different flavors!

      What a unique recipe. Definitely cheap and not too difficult for those of us who are not inclined to cook much. We have plenty of ramen noodles just sitting in the cabinet. I think I'll try to talk my husband into fixing this for me, or I may just do it myself! Voted up!
