With vegetables (onion, brocolli, carrot, bok choi) and tofu, sometimes egg.
eggs, bell pepper, mushrooms, chicken meat if i have any, chives, sesame oil, soy sauce, and this sounds gross but melting cheese over the top is really good. ramen is a great way to clean out the fridge.
I usually buy chicken-flavored one, but chilli-shrimp is also god tier
>Chilli Shrimp flavor packet
>Some Tabasco Jalapeno sauce mixed in
if i put the seasoning in when im boiling my noodles all the flavor will end up in the sink when i strain them. plus im using ramen noodles. that makes it ramen. just not ramen noodle soup.
i was given a six pack of ramen. i dont eat ramen because its not vegetarian, so i let them sit for a couple of months. One day i had nothing to eat, and i thought "i really dont want to spend any money". I cooked the noodles in boiling water, then i drained the water. i threw in an egg, some garlic and some sezchuan sauce i got from the store. Let the egg cook through, i plopped it on my plate, and sprayed some siracha sauce ontop. then i realized that siracha wasnt just a meme sauce.
ive since then added vegetables and things, like when i make gourmet ramen.
im enjoying my tweeked ramen.
>get a MAMA ramen noodle pack because they're the best
>Open it and extract the seasoning
>break the dry noodle block into tiny bits
>throw the red pasta thing and put the dry seasoning inside
>shake the whole package to be sure the flavor go in evenly
>now you have some delicious ramen chips with a spicy flavor
This is my whole childhood over there.
Whack on the steamer.
Put an egg and a piece of salmon in.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Add mushrooms, asparagus, sugar snaps, onions, whatever.
Cook 10 minutes more.
Spinach at bottom.
Pour in my cooked ramen.
Place my meat/veg/egg on top
If using beef or pork I add teriyaki sauce, cut into strips, and stir fry on a high heat for a minute or two.
Sometimes I steam dim sum in place of the fish.
I've got these nice square bowls that fit the brick in it.
>snap brick in half so noodles aren't as fucking long
>put in bowl
>add enough water until they float half an inch
>microwave for 3:33
But if it's any kind of imported from asia with multiple packets, just boil it on the stovetop according to the directions.
crack in half so its 2 squares, put them into my bowl and press my fist on it until it sufficiently crushed, then fill bowl with enough water then microwave for 3-4 minutes with a wooden spoon over top so that the water doesn't boil over.
I put them in a bowl and cover with boiling water and 1/2 the packet. then I cover the bowl for 3 minutes with a lid at the table. when the timer goes off, I open the lid and eat it.
>sometimes I put three little pieces of ham in and pretend I'm the mom from Ponyo and the little boy at the same time
I was visiting my grandpa around lunchtime one day. He was making himself a ramen.
While he was waiting for it to cook in the microwave he asked, "Is there anything I can do to fancy this up?"
"I put an egg in mine sometimes," I replied.
"You just crack the egg in and microwave it?"
"No, I cook it on the stove."
He looked puzzled for a second and finally asked, "You can cook these on the stove?"
That was the day my grandpa learned - and probably immediately forgot - that you can cook ramen on the stove.
>buy shin ramyun black
>boil water, add vegetable packet and noodles
>drain 1/3 of the water
>add spice packet and bone broth packet
>crack in one egg and stir
>pour into bowl and top with a kraft single and allow it to melt
boil for 3 minutes plain with no flavor, then strain out all the water with a strainer and put them back in the pot, then cold shock them. The residual heat from the noodles and pot warms the water to near perfect temperature, then I add the flavor packet.
I add sriracha and a small amount of sugar to taste. Ever since I tried it, I fucking love it and I can't have ramen without adding them.
>cook noodles in pan of water
>drain most water untill only a tiny bottom remains, add in premade chicken in peanut sauce cuz lazy. If I have it I'll also chuck in chicken pieces in sweet/sour sauce because that blend is fucking tasty
Absolute best ramen flavor coming through
