Ramen Noodle Block

Written By Pamela Morris of Korean Drama and Movies

Ramen Noodle is a staple food for Asian people and in US for starving college students like I was once upon a time. It is cheap, quick and easy to make so I was able to live on it during my college years when time and money were little and highly important to me. As now grown up person who can afford lavish meals, I still like eating Ramen noodle once a week. However, I got tired of eating what came in the package and started to make women more gourmet and a little bit more nutritious by adding vegetables and different spices.  I want to share my ramen noodle hacks, so you too can make a cheap meal into lavish gourmet meal in a short time at home.

Since I am vegetarian, I am sharing vegetarian hacks that I know and have used successfully in the kitchen. Ramen Noodles have come a long way in the US and I have eaten a lot during my college years.

Adding Veggies:

  • Adding, red onions, green spinach, Thinly sliced cabbage, lettuce, Scallion, will do wonders. Once I put home grown potato because my son wanted to try it, and it worked out so well.
  • I have tried also broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, sweet peas, corn, and other veggies in the noodle. Some vegetable may need to be pre-cooked before as instant noodle cooks quicker.
  • One can add frozen or boiled veggies inside the Ramen noodle too.

Add Sauces and Condiments

  • In addition to vegetables, I like to use my own spices, sauce or condiment with Ramen noodle. You can try curry powder, ginger, garlic paste, soya sauce, chili sauce, miso paste, bean paste (from Chinese or Japanese store), African Harrisa paste, Garam Masala and Emli sauce  (Indian Store)

Other Cooking Suggestions:

  • I have made Vegetarian Pad Thai with Ramen Noodle instead of Thin Rice noodle and while it looks different, it tastes wonderful.
  • Make Chinese sweet and sour chow mien or low-mien with Ramen noodle. You can use pineapple chucks or pineapple for sweet ingredient.
  • Make Spaghetti with sauce and wheat balls with Ramen Noodles.
  • Make a cheesy, noodle with cheese and tomato sauce.
  • Instead of Mac and Cheese with Macroni Pasta, Make Ramen and cheese for kids.
  • Make Ramen Veggie Primevera, Ramen Fettuccine, or Ramen with extra virgin olive oil and garlic to make a simple pasta dish with instant noodles.
  •  If you make vegetarian Shepard pie, make it with Ramen noodle instead.
  • I have also made a Green spinach salad with walnuts, and broken pieces of ramen noodles (extra crunchiness) with red wine vinaigrette dressing.

I buy ramen noodle in large pack from Amazon, it comes out to be much cheaper compared to the local grocery store and it delivers to my home. You can choose  many varieties of Ramen Noodles from Amazon: See Ramen Noodles.
