I’m looking for some different ways to prepare ramen noodles. Specifically, I’m interested in soy and chili flavored recipes.
If anyone has a personal favorite ramen recipe, or any tips on changing up the typical bowl of noodles, please share!
I’m writing specific articles for an internet media group, using the seasoning packets is out of the question in this case.
Any and all replies are appreciated :)
This show Cooking with Dog is pretty informative. I used a packet for my seasoning, but made the egg the way she made it and added other toppings. If you get the raw noodle packs, it's pretty good :o) It's nothing like Top Ramen!
How to Make Yakibuta Ramen
Here's one of the favorites I've come up with. Makes a great side (I like it with Teriyaki-style salmon or lightly seared tuna steaks) or vegetarian main, or can easily be adapted with the addition of some cooked meat, chicken, or shrimp.
BREEZY SESAME ZUCCHINI CARROT RAMEN NOODLES
1 small/medium zucchini
1 medium carrot
1 package Ramen noodles (or 1-2 pkges. ramen soup mix – seasoning packet discarded)
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
Aprox. 1 teaspoon (about 1”) peeled & grated fresh ginger
Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
Soy sauce to taste
Hot sesame oil (or regular, if desired)
Wash & trim zucchini; trim & peel carrot. Cut both into small batons or matchsticks. Trim & slice scallion.
Cook ramen noodles according to package directions & drain.
In a medium/large skillet, heat a thin coating of vegetable oil & sauté squash & carrot until just barely tender. Add scallion, ginger, & garlic & stir a few times. Add drained noodles & combine gently. Add crushed red pepper flakes & soy sauce to taste & gently combine again. Serve with a drizzle of hot (or regular) sesame oil on top.
There is a cookbook called "101 Things To Do With Ramen Noodles"---I had a copy once---it is now on amazon.com used hard copy or Kindle for about $5. Might be good for ideas.
