1) Take packet of noodles, DO NOT OPEN

2) Crush in fist

3) Open packet, toss noodles in bowl, toss salt packet in trash

4) Add hot sauce and garlic butter to bowl

5) Add boiling water.

I like having them with kimchi and fried spam.

Double handful of frozen mixed veggies works well.

yeah, they're basic noodles so go nuts. Cook 'em, drain them, let them cool, cut them into short pieces, toss in a spicy sauce and add to a salad. I add cooked greens and sprouts to mine when I have them in soup form. They also taste good if you add some chopped chilis and garlic to some hot oil and then toss the noodles in it.

The sauce isn't murder for you if you already watch your salt input. Also using just half of the pack will taste fine.

In fact, I might have noodle soup for supper tonight. I have lots of leftover chicken and some greens to use up before they go limp.

I use half the packet, usually the beef flavor.  Add cut up boneless chicken, mushrooms, noodles. crystals hot sauce, cayenne and crushed red pepper for a kick. get to a boil and then simmer add a scrambled egg.  Once egg is cooked through remove and serve.  it makes a nice savory, spicy soup.

Depends on the packet.  Get yourself a flavor where said packet pretty much just consists of powdered chiles.

BTW, if you find the flavor packets hyper-salty (which they are) and you aren't supposed to have that much salt, you can always substitute these:

A restaurant about 100 feet away from my back door breaks up the noodles and puts them in their slaw to add a little crunch. Shredded cabbage, some uncooked noodles, a dressing that's mostly soy sauce but I think there's a little peanut butter and some other magic stuff in there, garnished with peanuts. The noodles soften slightly from the dressing, but they don't get so soft that they stop being crunchy.

Oh yeah, that's a typical Thai thing.

Precooked sliced south west style chicken breast and some frozen veggies

I'm a little surprised how accessible these recipes are for Bonappetit. No pickled vegetables I have to make 30 days beforehand? no dehydrated fermented turmeric paste?

I think a person's ability to watch others make ramen wrong without interfering or commenting is the best gauge of their character.

I work with a group of kids and while doing web meetings for the last few months we issued a "chopped challenge" where we gave them a few specific ingredients and they had to turn them into a meal.  They could use the ingredients in any way they wanted but they had to use all of them, and they & a family member (judge) had to try everything they made.  3 of the items were cheap ramen, a can of chicken chunks, and seaweed sushi wrappers.

One boy cooked the noodles, chopped them up into little "rice", and made sushi rolls.
His sister mashed the cooked noodles, turned them into tortillas (of sorts), and made tacos.  Those were easily the most creative of the group.

There was a sesame cabbage ramen noodle slaw that made the rounds several years back and it was quite good. Never got the recipe though.

/uncooked ramen
/almonds too I think?
