Alas, I don't care for ramen. At least, not the instant stuff. I wan't to eventually eat hardcore, traditional versions. I'm willing to settle with making everything except the noodles myself and personalize like crazy, but I haven't gotten around to it. My potato soup variants are a major staple on my comfort-food list, instead. One of these days, I may toss ramen noodles in. I already like adding egg noodles, so it's not much of a stretch. Maybe that'll be my "ramen?"

I do love my Ramen, although I can't eat as much of it as I used to - how 6 oz of ramen can turn into a pound of flab I'll never understand.

I like to drop an egg into the boiling water , then add noodles, or I add miso paste, or whatever veggies are around. I also like to drain the water off & add the flavor packet and butter instead.

But one thing I do that seems pretty different is I make a cold noodle salad with Ramen noodles. The original recipe called for "Chinese noodles" -yeah, whatever that is - and I HAD Ramen so I cooked them up and used them and loved it so -

Make the Ramen noodles, drain and set aside in the refrigerator so they can get cold. Shred some lettuce and put it in the bottom of the bowl. In a small bowl or cup mix about 1/4 cup sesame oil and 1/4 cup soy sauce with a teaspoon or so of crushed garlic or about half that of garlic power and mix that up really good with a fork or whisk. Add to the Ramen noodles in a bowl and mix so the noodles are completely coated. Put the Ramen noodles over the lettuce and add some bean sprouts on top. You can put the whole bowl back in the refrigerator to get it colder if you like. Terrific in the summer.

I don't make ramen as much anymore, but whenever I do, I usually toss in a few pieces of lettuce in there, along with some deli meats or SPAM.

When my mom makes them, however, she usually adds in a couple of cooked eggs on top as well. Either sunny side up or poached but as long as the egg yolk is still liquid gold.

I like the beef flavored instant variety. I let it sit for maybe 20 minutes before eating to ensure the noodles have soaked up as much water as possible.

I prefer microwavable yakisoba though.

I like it undercooked and firm, but not too undercooked though. Last time I ate undercooked ramen, I ended up throwing it all back up like 10 minutes later!

The only time I eat ramen is when it's legit stuff, and not that calorie-packed packaged crap for 30 cents.

There aren't too many ramen shops around here though, so I usually hit up some Pho joints or get some udon.

I've never had the real deal ramen. I'd love to visit Japan at least once in my life and would love to get some ramen made from scratch.

As for that packaged stuff, I'll just eat it plain, or, sometimes, I'll throw in some French's Fried Onion. It is a tasty and compatible addition.



This stuff.

Also, some of you wonder how this stuff packs in so many calories with such a small amount...I believe that packaged ramen, which is noodles that are simple carbs...are then deep fried, which helps them become a dried food that can last long as well as enable the noodles to soften with just a short amount of time in hot water.

Oh yeah, once I discovered that you can easily prepare ramen packages in a microwave, I've hardly used the stove top for it since.
