Make It Monday: Not Your College Ramen Recipe

Monday, February 3, 2020

Ok guys its been a long time since I've tried a new recipe...

But a few weeks back when I attempted to switch to a more "health conscious" diet, I felt the need to  shake things up a bit and kick my typical meal ideas to the curb.

So I started racking my brain for new dinner ideas that incorporated fresh veggies, whole grains and unprocessed meat but still packed a punch in the flavor department.

So what did I decide on?

Baby Portobello Mushrooms
Hard boiled egg (optional)
 Red Pepper Flakes

1. Take the Ramen out of the package (it will come with a flavor packet that you can toss). Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the ramen in.

Let it cook for about 4-5 minuets partially drain and separate from water. You can save some of the water to use as an add in for broth later in the recipe if you like your ramen to have more "juice"

2. While the Ramen is boiling, chop or slice all of your vegetables. You can add others that suit your taste such as onions and bock choi or anything else that tickles your fancy.

Once chopped or sliced add a little olive oil into your wok or pan and sauté your vegetables until tender. Once soft but not fully cooked, remove from heat.

3. Season your chicken to taste with pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and red pepper flakes.

Dice or slice your chicken and cook.

. Mince Garlic clove and combine a cup of soy sauce with 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Taste mixture and balance flavor.
Ensure that you make enough to flavor your Ramen to your liking.

5. In wok or pan combine vegetables as well as chicken and add in some sauce and simmer. Then add in your ramen and mix all ingredients.

6. If you are adding an egg this would be a great time to boil it and have it ready for serving.


7. If you like more broth add water reserve from noodles to the pan/wok and taste.


Scoop out your ramen and serve with a hard boiled egg sliced in half if your fancy.

You will absolutely LOVE this recipe and it will have everyone you make it for begging for more (trust me).

Once you taste this you will never go back to your college Ramen. This is super easy to make and a great switch up to the typical dinner idea.

If you try this recipe let me know! I would love to hear if you liked it and what tweaks you made.

Until Next Time,
