ramen noodles

 my kids love ramen noodles!  i substitute other seasonings for the seasoning packets that come with the noodles since the seasoning has so much sodium & isn't healthy.   here are a few recipes to kick up the noodles, remember you can swap other seasonings for the packets.

1. Veggie Ramen. Toss a tablespoon of butter into a skillet. Add 2 tablespoons each of thinly-sliced carrots, frozen green beans, frozen white corn, and edamame. Cook just until softened. Add a packet of Pork Ramen, 2 cups of water, and cook until the noodles are cooked through, about 6 minutes. Add seasoning packet. Serve and enjoy. (we make this with out the seasoning packet, simpling sprinkling with parm)

 

2. Egg Foo Ramen. In a small bowl, whisk an egg with 1 tablespoon of water until well beaten. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Pour egg into the water, then add the noodles. Cook just until tender. Season with seasoning packet. Garnish with sliced green onions.

3. Chinese Chicken Salad. Shred 1/4 a head of cabbage, 1 breast of chicken, and 1/4 white onion. Add 1 package of crushed Chicken-flavored Ramen. In a small bowl, whisk together the seasoning packet, 2 tablespoons of oil, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Toss dressing into salad, serve and enjoy. (can be made without the seasoning packet, substitute other herbs to your taste)

4. Ham Fried Ramen. A simple take on Fried Rice, cook a packet of Pork Ramen until the noodles are tender. Drain completely. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and 1 tablespoon olive oil until sizzling. Add 1/4 cup diced ham and 1/4 cup of frozen peas & carrots to the oil. Immediately toss in the noodles. Crack an egg into the mixture and stir until well cooked and distributed around the noodle mixture. Season with soy sauce, garnish with a handful of diced green onions.

5. Parmesan Ramen. Cook a packet of ramen noodles. Save the flavoring packet for another day. Once the noodles are cooked, drain the water from them completely. Top with a pat of butter, a bit of freshly-shredded parmesan, and some chopped parsley.

do you have any other ways to make ramen?

My kids like ramen noodle just the way they are. It's just not the same to not use the seasoning. In my ramen noodles I put two eggs and a slice of cheese and some mushrooms if we have any, but I always use the seasoning packet.

We generally add some Tony's seasoning to it. Kaidan would live on Ramen if of let him.

Homemade hambuger helper. 

I fry a lb of ground beef and drain fat off.  Use the beef flavored ramen noodles I take the flavor pack and add it to the ground beef.   I put a small amount of water in the frying pan.  Break up the noodles and add to pan. Then I add left over veggies or a small can of mixed vegetables.  I cover and cook until noodles are soft and vegetalbes are hot about 10 min.

Ooh, I love the Ramen noodles, but can not really eat them because of the sodium. Thanks so much, these ideas are great!

We love them too! We make a soup using diced celery, green peppers, onion powder, cayenne pepper, & shrimp - sooooo good. Somtimes we add some diced tomatoes and chick peas :-) Just depends on what we have on hand.

I don't make it any other way, but I do enjoy the beef flavor. Which, to me, is weird... I can't explain why I love it so much.
