101 Recipes for Ramen Noodles

Ramen Noodles
believe it or not...
I am going through a Ramen Noodles phase
interestingly enough...
neither my wife or kids are complaining about my various Ramen Noodle Recipes

here are a couple...

1. Ramen Noodles Straight Up simply cook the noodles and add the flavor packet
it is simple... it is good
the hot broth itself has some merit
especially on these cold days

it is quick... it is simple... it is cheap
but... there is more potential to the Ramen Experience than just the 17 cent package tossed into boiling water

okay... I am not sure of the specific numbers of each of these recipes
they build... they mix... and they match
somewhere along the line we come up with this one
we had the other day

24. Ramen Noodles with wontons and chicken broth
instead of using water use chicken broth or half chicken broth and half water
when the water is boiling and you are about to throw in the noodles... toss in some frozen wontons
then... after everything is all cooked up give it an extra touch by adding some scallions when you add the flavor packets

25. Ramen noodles with shumai and chicken broth
same as 24. but instead of frozen fried wontons you use frozen shumai
then consider onions instead of scallions

we have not tried number 42...

42. Ramen Noodles with Egg
easy enough... this involves simply cracking and egg and mixing it in after the water has boiled and the noodles are cooked... one egg per noodle packet
along with what ever spices or broths you have decided work for you

I have cooked Ramen Noodles Number 37. for myself and the family a few times

37. Ramen noodles with celery and carrots
Cook the noodles to your preference with water or chicken broth
while the liquid boils... clean and chop the carrots and celery
then microwave the carrots and celery in a little water... this softens em up... which makes them soft in the soup
after 2-3 minutes of microwave time go ahead and pour the water and vegetables into the pot of boiling liquid
this way no minerals or flavor are lost from the microwave process
once the vegetables are in the pot and after the noodles are cooked add scallions or flavor packets to your liking

at 17 cents a packet... it is a pretty good start to some Stone Soup

anyone with some favorite simple Ramen Recipes?
