We have all ridden the Ramen noodle train right? Yeah I know, but Maruchan makes it so easy right? I mean you can buy enough Ramen to feed an entire country for like ten freaking cents. The problem is that it kind of tastes like you can feed an entire country for ten cents too. That’s ok though, innovation to the rescue. I have figured out a way to turn Ramen noodles into something that you can actually eat. Imagine that.
Before you do anything, fry an egg and break it up a little bit. You don’t want to just toss a whole fried egg into your bowl or maybe you do. Everyone’s tastes are different. If you want to do it quick, cook it in the microwave. Yes that’s right; you can cook an egg in the microwave. I do it all the time folks. All you have to do is put the egg in a microwave safe bowl, beat it and set the microwave for about a minute and a half. Quick and easy. Heat up about two tablespoons of the frozen pea and carrot mix of your choice as well. You can heat that up in the microwave too. Just add enough water to it to cover the mixture and warm it for about five minutes or until the vegetables are hot all the way through.
Alright, now add a cinder block of Ramen noodles to boiling water and cook them for about four minutes, stirring occasionally until they are tender. I haven’t figured out what “tender” means in relation to Ramen noodles yet, so maybe someone out there can enlighten me. When you figure it out let me know. Anyway, when they are done (whatever that means), remove the pot from heat and add in the seasoning mix. Now don’t get all sip happy, because we are going to pour the majority of the broth out. That’s right, stir it up a little bit and then mosey on over to the sink and pour all of that juicy goodness right down the drain. A little bit of the seasoning will stick to the noodles and that’s about all you need for this recipe. Don’t worry; you will thank me when you realize that the seasoning packet contains Disodium Phosphates, Monosodium Glutamate and enough sodium to drop a field of oxen on their faces.
Now just toss in the egg and the pea and carrot mix, stir everything up and dig in. Now you have Ramen noodles that taste good and you actually added a little nutrition to it with the egg, peas and carrots. It is still bad for you though, so eat up!
