Can you think of unusual ways to use those ramen noodles?
Recipes that include them?
P.s. I would really like a Bump with each new idea.

  • I have a recipe for a great salad that uses Napa cabbage. You cut the cabbage like you're making cole slaw. Take out the seasoning packet and then crush up the noodles in a plastic bag w/ a rolling pin. Then toast them in a pan with some sesame seeds. To make the dressing, mix the spice packet w/ canola oil, a little sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. Toss all together and serve. It is yummy!

    You can probably find the recipe through Google - it is called Fuji salad I believe.

  • I buy the oriental kind (when I can still find them!!) and do sort of a lo mein by adding half a bag or so of frozen stir fry veggies and the seasoning packet at the end.

  • With the chicken flavored on we cook it according to the package directions then we scramble an egg into it and melt a slice of american cheese in it. It's so good.

  • I have a dorito recipe. I use 2 small packages of ramen noodles, one small bag of doritos, 1/2 lb ground beed, taco seasoning. You cook the hamburger like you would for anything and add the taco seasoning mix. Boil the noodles, drain and mix with the hamburger mix. Put it into a bowl, and then add the doritos around it like a flower I guess, and then crumple up other doritos and sprinkle on top. You can also add shredded cheese if you want to.

  • Oh I've used them in so many ways. I have broken them up in the package, sprinkled the season over them and eaten them as a snack (like chips). I have cooked the noodles, drained them, not put the seasoning on them and melt butter and cheese over them. I have used the noodles to make a stir fry. I have used the seasoning packets by themselves to season meats.

  • Depends if you want most tasty... or most unusual?
    For me, I do myself a quick cheat's Pot Noodle - make up the noodles according to packet, drain away some but not all of the cooking water, add a little gravy granules to make a sauce, add Thai sweet chilli sauce, some frozen peas and some small frozen prawns and bring back to temp. DeLISHous!!
    Or, as a sweet treat and if they're dry noodles, break the dry noodles up and deep fry til they puff up, then toss in icing sugar. You can do this with pasta too, particularly good with broken dry lasagne sheets!

  • I cook the noodles, and I thinly slice some Hill shire smoke sausage into them with the seasoning pack.

  • Oh I forgot..Drain the noodles before adding the smoke sausage, then just let it simmer for about 10 minutes. You can sprinkle a little cheese over it too. My kids love this. Ramen noodles to me are boring by themselves.
