I love eating one of those 2 minutes just-add-water ramen noodles; go on, laugh. Seriously, there’s something about them that I just like the taste of. I think it’s the MSG.
But, lets be honest, the taste gets old way too quickly. Ain’t no one would want to eat something that taste the same over and over again. That is why I am typing this for y’all that are sick of their ‘chicken’ flavored ramen.
Just in case you haven’t the foggiest what I am talking about:
I personally prefer the one on the right.
1. Add your own condiments; don’t be limited to the little seasoning packet
Go on, go take that bottle of soy sauce out and pour some (some like a teaspoon. don’t pour a dollop) and mix it in. Or mustard.. ketchup… Thai chili sauce. Why the hell not? It’s gonna add some more flavour into it no matter what you put in it.
2. Cut some veggies up and pop ’em in
You don’t even have to cook them separately; just chop some up and.. put it in! Tastes so much better… the crunch and whatnot y’know? And it would make you feel better for eating that stuff. Added vitamins and whatever.
3. Fry/boil/poach an egg
It’s not that hard y’know. Just crack and egg in a pan and… you’re done. Or you could always just do it the way I like mine; crack the egg directly into the saucepan which you’re simmering your ramen noodles and stir continuously. It will make awesome strands of E G G. But no matter however you make your egg just remember; everything’s better with an egg.
4. Add some poultry into that. Leftovers? Even better.
You want to be full for a lil’ bit longer (like for at least 2 hours)? Grab last night’s (or last week. Which ever) sweet and sour chicken and throw it in your saucepan along with the noodles. You could always just use raw chicken; just chop some up into bite size pieces. Prefer something more chewier? Just chop the chicken up and don’t cook it – wait until you are done cooking the ramen and then just eat it as it is. Very chewy om nom nom.
5. Don’t. Stop being so lazy and get pizza.
I highly recommend this step. It’s healthier anyway. I mean, at least it uses ingredients that you can pronounce and have heard of.
I hope I saved your ehem today; and your money seeing as adding an egg an some baby carrots to a packet of maggi probably costs like 2.50 bucks. Your welcome.
Have fun in your kitchen. Don’t get fired *cue guffaw*.
