Ramen Noodles...?

Do you ever use raman noodles in a recipe?
And...have you ever eaten it un-cooked? Un-cooked seems to be a fad right now among the young adults at my daughters college.
Just wondering if ya'll had other uses for this cheap food stuff, lol!

  • I don't use them in recipes, but I love to eat them :) Some of my friends used to eat them uncooked, but I think its nasty that way. To salty and to crucnhy. Although I always eat the stragglers in the bottom of the bag.

  • I have made it without leaving water in it i drain the water and add a little butter and love it. Also have added shrimp and chicken to it. Have lots of sodium so can't make it a habit but its good in a pinch. Never ever heard of eating it uncooked,, Also, my SO is Spanish and he adds an egg right before he takes it out. Says that what they always did? He loves it..

  • Traditional ramen is made without the pouch, and there are tons of different ways to make it. You can use the packages, but they are the same as just eating a block of water softener salt.  This is an idea of what it should look like:

    You can get the noodles separately - look for Chinese wheat noodles (usually called la mian or lo mein) and if you have an Asian market anywhere near you, they'll be just as cheap, if not cheaper, than the grocery store ramen without the deadly dose of salt.

    They come in balls like this:

    Or flat lumps like in top ramen.  There's a bunch of ways to use them.

  • Uncooked, they are great in napa valley cabbage salad! My DD likes to eat the broken peices uncooked if I make her a package. I don't think they're bad uncooked, kind of like kettle chips. We don't eat them often though.

  • I use to cook them and then add chunk chicken and canned veggies to make a chicken noodle soup. I use to eat them uncooked and my daughter does too. We dont cook them for the time it recommends either. She likes the crunch =)

  • NO i cant stand those noodles. They have a smell to me i just cant stand. But i must admit, I ate them to much when I was younger. My kids love them. The eat them cooked, they eat them raw, They eat them cook with smoked sausage, They want me to cokk them and add steamed chicken, beef, and shrimp. And sometimes they like a boild egg in them and slice the egg into circles and lay it on top.

  • I buy an organic version on occasion; I avoid buying toxic foods like this.
