Here are some awesome quick recipes and suggestions using Ramen noodles:
Worlds fastest chicken noodle soup: Prepare Ramen noodles according to package instructions but instead of adding the noodles as they arrive in the package, break them up so that they are bite sized and cook accordingly. Add in 1 cup of cubed cooked chicken. This can be canned, or come from a rotisserie style cooked chicken or from left overs. Add in one cup of cooked and diced carrots. Fast and easy!
Add cooked Ramen to sauteed onion and Bok Choy, or Collard Greens, Kale(your choice). Toss in a handful of baby Portobello mushrooms, a dash or two of red pepper flakes, and soy sauce and yum!
Cheesy Ramen- cook noodles and add in a few tablespoons of half and half, a pat or two of butter and any type of cheese you love.
Soup extender- any soup you are making will go further and still taste great just by adding in some Ramen to the mix. I always like to break it into small pieces.
Ramen Spaghetti- Ramen is a noodle like any other and as such can be used to replace spaghetti noodles, add sauce, meatballs and enjoy!
