sometimes i’m lazy/drunk and want ramen.
here’s a list of some good spicy packaged ones (i like #5).
and here’s how to get your ramen all fancy, quickly:
- add an egg. many ways to do this, but my fave is to drop that baby in like you’re making egg drop soup. beat the egg in a small bowl and when the noodles are cooked, swirl it in!
- vegetables. i always add in spinach before serving, but other faves are bok choy and sprouts. the more the merrier!
- sauces. i like a bit of miso paste and fish sauce in mine.
- meat. personally, some sautéed chicken thighs do the trick. also, sliced pork or beef if you have any around.
